A hardship post is a term used in the United States Diplomatic Service to describe a diplomatic post where living conditions are difficult due to climate, crime, health care, pollution or other factors. Employees assigned to such posts receive a hardship differential of between 10 and 35 percent of their salary.[1] A hardship post with security issues, for example in a war zone, may also be a designated hardship post with employees eligible for additional danger pay.[1]
