Inclement Weather Pay Policies
1 hour 30 minutes
Find out how you can protect your company from employment related challenges posed by inclement weather.
Many employers are not prepared to address employment related issues that arise due to unforeseen, or even foreseen, inclement weather, until it happens. Even those employers who are generally aware of when they are obligated to pay employees when bad weather causes interruption to their operations, do not recognize that a whole host of other issues may arise outside of the wage and hour context, including an employer's obligations under the FMLA, OSHA, ADA, or their own policies. This topic helps employers understand not only the various employment related considerations that may arise due to inclement weather, but provides employers concrete examples on how to address these situations. You will receive guidance on how to get ahead of the storm and implement clear and consistent policies so that the relevant individuals within your business operations are prepared in advance to diffuse any issues. While this topic is critical to employers with operations located in areas subject to extreme or winter weather, it will also be useful to all employers regardless of location as preparedness is vitally important when dealing with something as unpredictable as Mother Nature.
