AT&T is giving a 20 percent bonus to their front line employees during the coronavirus pandemic.

The company said they have a responsibility like few other companies during the coronavirus pandemic.

Doctors and healthcare providers, their FirstNet first responders and all their customers depend on AT&T to stay connected.

The company wants to thank to all their employees, but particularly their front-line employees who are working hard serving customers during this challenging time.

To show their appreciation for these employees, effective March 25 and until further notice:

  • AT&T will pay a 20% bonus above the regular hourly base rate of pay to bargained-for employees for all time worked in the office or at home. That bonus will be included in their regular rate of pay for purposes of calculating overtime rates.
