Inclement Weather, Natural Disasters & Other Emergency Shutdowns: How To Navigate Pay And Other Policy Obligations

Webinar: ID# 1023435
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
A state of emergency can descend on the workplace at anytime due to extreme weather events (blizzards, ice storms, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and so on), as well as incidents of workplace violence and other unforeseen and potentially catastrophic events.

When your office(s) must close abruptly, you must be prepared to address the employment-related challenges that may arise. For instance, you must be mindful of your obligations to pay employees when inclement weather leads to an interruption in your operations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). There are other issues that potentially could arise under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

Join us for a disaster-preparation webinar that will arm you with solid strategies for reacting with regard to pay and other issues when inclement weather or worse strikes.

Our presenter, a skilled employment attorney, will explain how to implement concise policies to weather the storm and keep your organization in the legal clear.

Don’t wait for disaster to strike to figure out your compliance obligations. Register now to learn how to trudge on when extreme winter storms, natural disasters, or other unexpected situations force worksite closures.
