State and Local Hazard Pay
- President Biden recently proposed giving essential workers “back hazard pay,” and while he provided few details around who would be eligible, how much they would receive, and who would pay, previous proposals from House Democrats as well as state and local hazard pay laws can indicate what form a federal plan could take.
- House Democrats proposed last year giving a $13 per hour raise to certain medical professionals along with other essential or front-line employees, such as pharmacists and grocery-store clerks, funded by $200 billion from the federal government.
- Seattle’s targeted hazard-pay ordinance, which requires only grocery workers receive an extra $4 an hour, and Maryland’s broad hazard-pay proposal, which would require all essential workers with income up to $100,000 a year receive an extra $3 an hour, mark the potential range of options for what a federal hazard pay requirement could look like.
- On a national scale, Seattle’s proposal could cost employers up to $12.4 billion over one year, and Maryland’s plan could cost employers up to $238 billion over one year.
President Biden recently put out a statement “calling on employers to meet their obligations to frontline essential workers and provide back hazard pay.” While the idea of “back” hazard pay is somewhat counterintuitive, as back pay would not encourage essential workers to stay at their jobs amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this is not the first time that policymakers have floated the idea of mandating national hazard pay. Congressional Democrats included hazard pay in their Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act in May, while Senator Mitt Romney introduced his own proposal the same month.
Since that initial burst of proposals, however, interest has waned at the federal level, yet states and municipalities have enacted a variety of hazard pay bills or ordinances. Because President Biden has not provided any details on his proposal for back hazard pay, it is worth exploring what states and cities have done in order to get a sense for how different eligibility criteria could affect cost and the number of affected workers at the national level.
The city of Seattle and Maryland provide useful examples. Seattle extended hazard pay to grocery store workers alone, while Maryland is proposing hazard pay for all essential workers. While examining these programs will not answer all questions about a federal program—who will pay, most obviously—they along with the congressional proposals can give a sense of what a proposal from the Biden Administration could look like.
Previous Federal Hazard Pay Proposals
In April 2020, Senate Democrats proposed the “Heroes Fund” plan, a hazard pay proposal that eventually became part of the HEROES Act, which passed the House in May 2020. According to Senator Schumer, the plan would have covered a number of different medical professionals in addition to other workers in essential services such as truck drivers, pharmacists, and grocery store clerks. This proposal would have applied a flat-rate hazard pay increase of $13 an hour paid for by $200 billion in federal funding. Employers would apply for grants to provide workers with the $13 bonus. While the federal government would provide $200 billion toward these grants, the American Action Forum estimates that the plan could cost up to $673 billion.
Senator Romney introduced a different stand-alone hazard pay bill, Patriot Pay. The legislation would mandate that essential workers receive a $12 an hour bonus, with a quarter covered by employers and three quarters paid by the federal government. Employers would receive a 75 percent refundable payroll tax credit for the additional pay, up to $12 an hour.
While funding streams are different, both proposals would place a mandate on employers to provide support and fund the aid, at least partially, through grants or refundable tax credits.
As part of initial negotiations over the American Rescue Plan, the Biden Administration called for back hazard pay for frontline and essential workers, stating that the president would “call on CEOs and other business leaders to take action to meet these obligations.” Without any additional detail, this statement suggests the administration would like a national hazard pay system that would mandate employers increase pay. Given that call and subsequent language from the White House, the White House appears to prefer an employer mandate where business owners would be responsible for covering the cost of pay bonuses.
Previous Research and State-Level Variation
Previous American Action Forum research estimated the cost of nationalized hazard pay under the HEROES Act proposal and at different percent wage hourly increases. Since this proposal, many states have decided to pass their own legislation. In some cases states and local governments provide support to pay for costs; in others hazard pay is done through mandates on employers. Some states opted to leave hazard pay rules up to cities and counties, but 15 have enacted statewide hazard pay legislation. Each statewide policy varies in terms of who bears responsibility for costs, amount, duration, and eligibility. State-by-state hazard pay legislation and proposals can be found in the appendix.
Pay and Duration
One model being used by states has hazard pay provided over increments of weeks, months, or pay periods totaling between $60 and $300 a week. Other states opted for hourly increases between $1 and $10 or simply provided one-time supplemental payments (with the most generous example totaling $2,000). Most statewide payments began between March and May 2020, aligning with the start and initial spike in COVID-19 cases and unemployment. Some of the legislation passed in the later months of 2020 were retroactively applied to earnings in March. Currently, end dates for enacted legislation mostly remain within 2020, with very few spilling into the early months of 2021. There are different options when it comes to who would cover the cost of hazard pay. In some cases the state provides funds to support their proposals, while in other examples hazard pay is merely mandated, meaning costs would fall on employers.
Across plans, eligible employees range from general frontline workers such as first responders and grocery store workers, to more specific groups represented by unions or working for particular companies. Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York’s statewide legislation only applied to ShopRite employees. In Massachusetts, eligibility was limited to state health care workers represented by the union American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. Similarly, Michigan offered payment only to correction officers represented by the Michigan Corrections Organization.
Seattle and Maryland
In order to illustrate the differences in scope and cost of different plans, this analysis looks at the hazard pay plan from the city of Seattle and the state of Maryland. While both plans, if applied nationally, would use an hourly increased pay structure, what makes them different is eligibility criteria, a consistently challenging aspect of any hazard pay plan.
In short, the Seattle ordinance mandates all grocery stores with over 500 workers provide their workers with hazard pay of $4 an hour. The affected workers and the flat increase amount are clearly defined. This likely reduces administrative burden, but a flat rate also means all workers receive the same amount regardless of role or compensation level. Looking at the national level, legislation like this one could affect nearly 2 million workers and cost $12.4 billion over one year. At the $4 hazard pay level, grocery store worker would see between an 18 and 33 percent increase in wages. The Seattle Ordinance took effect February 3 and will continue “until the end of the COVID-19 civil emergency.” The increased costs seem to have led to closures of some stores as a result of the ordinance coupled with dwindling profit margins. Taken to national scale, the Seattle hazard pay ordinance could total $12.4 billion over one year.
Cost of Seattle Hazard Pay Ordinance
|Occupation||Employment||Avg. Hourly Wage||Hourly Hazard Pay||Weekly Cost of $4/hr. Hazard Pay||Annual Cost of $4/hr. Hazard Pay|
|Butchers and meat cutters||107,980||$16.20||$4.00||$13,087,176||$680,533,152|
|Food preparation workers||190,060||$12.72||$4.00||$23,035,272||$1,197,834,144|
|Stock clerks and order fillers||556,220||$13.32||$4.00||$67,413,864||$3,505,520,928|
|TOTAL||2 million||$238.5 million||$12.4 billion|
Estimates were made using detailed 2019 employment and wage data. Given job losses and reduction in hours, these numbers represent upper bound estimates.
As previous nationwide hazard pay proposals have not been as specifically targeted, it is unlikely that a federal plan would be limited to a single occupation. The much broader Maryland plan is more in line with Democrats’ previously proposed HEROES Act plan that includes all essential workers.
The Maryland hazard pay proposal is far broader and more inclusive than most other state and local plans. Eligibility for this proposal largely follows the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency advisory list that had previously been used by the HEROES Act proposal. Not only would the proposal, on a national scale, cover over 14 industries or sectors totaling between 25 and 35 percent of the labor force, but according to the legislation text, the pay could be back dated to the start of the pandemic. Of course, the costs would be significantly higher compared to the Seattle plan given that there would be more eligible workers for likely a longer period of time. Workers from eligible industries who make less than $100,000 a year would receive $3 an hour in hazard pay. Taken to national scale, the Maryland hazard pay proposal could total $238 billion over one year.

Estimates were made using detailed 2019 employment and wage data and adjusted for estimated job loss during in relevant industries in addition to excluding workers who make more than $100,000 a year.
Hazard pay has gained renewed attention due to President Biden’s support for a back hazard pay plan. While there are few details surrounding what form a nationwide hazard pay plan could take and no funding has been allocated to hazard pay, existing and recently proposed state and local legislation could offer a sense of scope and costs. As more time goes on, however, hazard pay becomes less likely to pass due to vaccine rollout and more individuals returning to work. Furthermore, many large businesses have opted to implement broad hazard pay policies in order to support their workers and incentivize work. Small business hazard pay policies are less common. Where they exist, they may be considerably more ad hoc, and focused on perks like meals and childcare arrangements rather than bonus compensation. Encouraging businesses that can to provide hazard pay without a mandate would avoid unnecessary permanent business closures and avoid further exacerbating long-term unemployment.
