Adverse weather/transport issues affecting ability to attend work

  • Posted

With heavy snow expected this week, here’s an extract from our absence policy, if you don’t have a policy for your team on adverse weather.

Where an employee is unable to get to work due to adverse weather and/or public or personal transport limitations they are reminded that it is their responsibility to attend work in line with their contract.

Depending on the circumstances – and where an employee has contacted the Organisation in line with the procedures and has made reasonable effort to get to their place of work but has been unable to do so – management may, at their discretion, agree to unpaid time off for a limited period.  The Line Manager may, depending on the circumstances, grant an employee’s request for the time off to be taken as paid holiday from their annual entitlement.
