PRESS RELEASE

All workers involved with Ebola response are informed that the National Ebola Response Center (NERC), through the Audit Service Sierra Leone has completed the compilation of staff lists for the Ebola response for payment of Hazard Incentives.

All Ebola response workers are also informed that the hazard incentives will now be paid on a bi-weekly (every two weeks) basis to allow ample time for processing payment liquidations and putting new incentives payment requests. This change will by no means affect the amount.

NERC wishes to therefore inform all payees that the next hazard incentives payment will be on Friday 14th November, 2014. The welfare of all frontline workers remains a paramount priority of NERC and we apologize for any inconvenience that this change in payment time will cause.
