Inclement Weather Policies

Inclement Weather Practices

As we in the Northeast prepare for what is the first snow event of the season we need to look at what policies and practices we have in place for days when the weather impacts the ability for employees to get to work. Absences on days like these are driven more by closed schools than they are by impassable roads. Having a policy on how said absences are to be dealt with in advance that is communicated to all management and staff is critical. Administering said policies equally and consistently is paramount. Is it a personal day? A sick day? A vacation day? A work from home day? Sort it out before the first flake falls.
