Depending on the nature of the allowance. We will usually term it as Appointment or Stand In allowance that can be removed once the person is no longer performing the role.

In my previous jobs, we categorise employees into special skills that are in demand. An allowance was given to this group of employees. We also factor in traveling.

So for instance, now there is a demand for cybersecurity competency and skills. You can apply an allowance to the employees in this group.
