Amtrak Gives Incentives to Employees to Get COVID-19 Vaccine

Amtrak is offering financial incentives to its workers to get a COVID-19 vaccine injection in an effort to get its workforce immunized.

The incentives include pay, benefit extensions and excused absences.

The pay benefit is an allowance equal to two hours of straight-time wages for those who receive the vaccine shot during scheduled work hours.

Protected pay will be offered to those who miss work because of vaccination side effects.

If those side effects last more than 48 hours, Amtrak will continue to protect pay as long as medical documentation is provided.
