Best Buy said it will pay pandemic-related bonuses to all hourly employees and give additional paid time off to those who get Covid-19 vaccines.

The consumer electronics retailer announced the bonuses on Tuesday, about two weeks after it confirmed it will lay off some store staff as part of a companywide reorganization. The layoffs were first reported by The Wall Street Journal. It did not say how much the bonuses will cost the company.
