Hardship allowance at work
The mobility, hardship and similar arrangements are set to encourage working under difficult conditions. These difficulties are mainly about geographic problems or occupying hard duty stations. Hardship allowance, Non-family Service Allowance for service at non-family duty stations, Accelerated home leave, relocation related elements and mobility incentives are allowances that hardship and mobility arrangements may include.
The amount of payment depends widely on the conditions of work. Higher salaries, tax relief and other advantages are provided to convince applicants to take the job. For a job hunter, although in short-term spells it means more income and higher achievements, but difficulties like being far away from their family might cause health problems.
