A snow covered rural landscape

What do employers need to know about snow & travel disruption?

Snow and travel disruption at work

Following the snow across much of the UK last week the issue of snow and disruption at work and the inevitable questions about employers obligations has arisen. So in this episode of the podcast I cover what you should do if employees cannot attend at work because of snow.  

In this episode I will cover the following:

  • Steps you should take to prepare your business for adverse weather.
  • Minimum temperatures at work.
  • What employee rights are if schools are closed or there is disruption to childcare.
  • Why it is important to have a policy in place to deal with snow days.
  • Things to consider and options to avoid an employee losing out on pay.
  • When unlawful deductions from wages may apply.
  • Why it is important to get advice.
  • Health and safety considerations

We can help with the relevant procedure and clause for your employment contracts to deal with snow and travel disruption. Please do not hesitate to get in touch for some real life help for your organisation.
