AT&T paying coronavirus front-line workers 20% bonus + Extended Sick Leave

To keep its network running, AT&T said last week (3/26/2020) that it is paying a 20 percent bonus to its front-line union employees above their regular hourly base rate.

The company is also offering as much as 160 hours of excused time off for employees who have tested positive for the coronavirus, who are at higher risk due to underlying health conditions, who have to watch children at home or who are acting as the primary caregiver for a family member diagnosed with COVID-19.

AT&T will also waive fees for personnel on select U.S. Navy ships to make calls through April 30, provide deployable cell sites at no additional charge for public safety agencies on FirstNet and waive late fees upon request for consumer and small business wireless, home phone and broadband customers affected by the pandemic.
