Hardship Allowance

Additional pay that an expatriate employee may receive for living and working in a potentially dangerous area. For example, if an oil company sends an employee to work a rig in a warzone, he/she likely will receive a hardship allowance in the form of a higher salary. In addition to the hardship allowance, the employee may receive additional vacation time and other benefits.
