If a hurricane is coming…that means 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).
Don’t let last year’s calm winter fool you. It can turn bad, very bad, in the blink of an eye. Accuweather.com is predicting much higher-than-average snow for the East Coast this winter.
Important: This is NOT just an hurricane issue. In just the past few months, storms, power outages, fires, tornadoes, extreme heat, and hurricanes have played havoc with pay and attendance policies throughout the country.
