Arkansas-based mega-fleet J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc. is paying a one-time bonus of $500 for drivers and personnel at field operations and customer facilities supporting drivers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The bonus will be paid Friday, March 27, to eligible employee drivers, as well as field employees and managers in terminals, intermodal ramps, maintenance shops, Dedicated Contract Service account locations, and Final Mile distribution centers who directly support drivers.
“All of our employees have gone above and beyond the call to action during this crisis,” said John Roberts, president and CEO of J.B. Hunt. “And nearly all of our field-level, front-line employees and certainly all of our drivers are required in person and have upheld the high standards of our company. They have kept pace with the evolving supply chain needs of our customers in the face of great uncertainty. These bonuses serve as a token of our appreciation for their service and hard work during these unprecedented times.”
J.B. Hunt said it has taken several precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Earlier this month the company issued a directive to work from home until at least April 3, 2020, for employees whose on-site presence is not required to perform their work. The company is also providing employees with hand sanitizer and gloves and established an emergency COVID-19 paid time off policy for employees who are unable to work due to the illness or quarantine.
