Who receives and who does not receive?
The extraordinary award will cover permanent, commissioned, accepted under temporary contracts or CLT contracts who, cumulatively, had a relationship with the Department of Health (Sesa) between April 2020 to September 2021, and who were in service for at least 180 days during that period.

How will the payment be?
The exceptional bonus for health workers will be added to the salaries for the month of December
It will not be part of the salaries for the purpose of awarding personal benefits and determining profits and will not be incorporated into bonuses, in any capacity. The value of the bonus will not include discounts and personal benefits, unless specified by applicable legislation.
Pandemic law allows health benefits
The governor indicated that although Federal Law 173/2020 remains in force, health workers may be awarded the bonus because they are among the exceptions to the legislation. The law prohibits granting benefits and adjustments to civil servants nationwide, in exchange for the financial assistance the federal government has provided to states and municipalities to combat the pandemic.
In order to pay, the proposal needs the approval of the legislature, but Casagrande emphasized that he believed in the sensitivity of parliamentarians to accept the government’s initiative. With consent, the assistance may be granted later this month.
