Inclement Weather Pay Policies: One Size Does Not Fit All
|Date / Time:
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.

|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.
