Establish rock-solid, legally safe policies and practices.
Inclement Weather Policies: Best HR and Payroll Practices
Winter weather (and other weather emergencies) will force you to deal with tricky HR questions like:
If you close early due to bad weather, must you still pay employees (exempt and nonexempt) for the full day?
What if they come in late or leave early — must they receive their full pay?
Can you make them take vacation or other paid time off?
If the office remains open, but employees can’t make it in … can you dock their pay? What if they’ve exhausted their leave?
Don’t wait for a weather emergency to learn answers to questions like these. Now is the time to review your attendance and pay policies to make sure they cover all the bad-weather bases and comply with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Important: This is NOT just a snow issue. Storms, power outages, fires, tornadoes and extreme heat can play havoc with your pay and attendance policies.
In just 75 minutes, you’ll learn exactly what your inclement weather policy should say for maximum legal protection and flexibility.
