About This Course:
Whether facing tornadoes, wildfires or hurricanes, you will very likely have to contend with more than just the attendant logistical headaches brought on by inclement weather, such as delayed openings, office closures, and reduced manpower. Are you required to pay employees for time the office is closed due to bad weather? What about delayed openings or early closings? Do you have to pay employees for the entire workday after they have been sent home early due to an impending blizzard?

In this comprehensive webinar, you will learn how to navigate and comply with the federal and state laws that govern these special circumstances, including call-in pay, waiting time or standby time, telework, whether to treat exempt and nonexempt employees differently for time lost due to inclement weather, what constitutes unlawful deductions from employee pay, and the consequences for noncompliance with federal and state law. Best practices for crafting and communicating inclement weather pay policies to ensure wage and hour compliance, with due consideration to preserving and protecting employee morale and safety, will also be addressed.
