Weather-Related Absenteeism: Policies, Payroll Adjustments, Telecommuting, and More
|Date / Time:
Winter is right around the corner, and along with the threat of bad weather comes pleas from emergency management to have employees stay home from work and off the roads.
Maybe it's a snowstorm, or perhaps a hurricane. Whatever the weather threat, many employers often find themselves hesitant to crack down on absent employees in the face of bad weather conditions.
The issue of inclement weather never goes away. Winter rains and snowstorms make way for spring floods, tornadoes, and even wildfires in some parts of the country. Every season comes complete with its own weather worries, which leave employers wondering how to handle attendance policies, leave time, and when employees must be paid in spite of their attendance at work.
The key is to strike the right balance of creating a reliable workforce with enough flexibility for when travel conditions are hazardous.
Participate in our interactive and timely webinar, and you'll learn:
- How to calculate who gets paid, time-off, attendance, and deductions when workers are absent due to weather
- What role travel time and work time play in weather-related absenteeism, specifically what's compensable and what's not
- Key differences between e-empt and none-empt employees when bad weather causes shortened workdays or facility closures, and what that means for you
- What happens when employees traveling on business encounter bad weather
- Why you must have an inclement weather policy and points to include when developing one
- How to keep accurate records and effective payroll access, retention, and safety during weather emergencies
- Which laws apply to inclement weather policies at both the state and federal levels
- How to manage on-call employees who need to return to work when the weather subsides
- Three basic rules that govern work time, and what that means when compensating employees who miss work due to weather
- How to handle telecommuters when the office is closed
- How to effectively communicate policies to employees before inclement weather hits
- Pros and cons of having workers work from home
- What to do when an employee wants to make up time missed due to bad weather
- How to accommodate employees who can't make it in due to the weather
- What to do if your business is open but an employee does not report for work
In just 90 minutes, you'll get practical guidance on how to handle tricky issues related to weather-related absences.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
