HR and winter weather brrrr

With some history making overnight low temperatures, and heavy snow fall in parts of the UK, it seems relevant to share this article from Personnel Today which answers 5 common questions employers ask when faced with winter weather workplace disruption. 

If you want to know more about the answers to the following questions, then click on the link to access the full article:

1. Do I have to pay employees who cannot get to work because of severe weather?

2. What are my options if I need employees to work even though the weather is bad?

3. Can employees take periods when they cannot get to work because of poor weather as annual leave?

4: If I close my workplace because of bad weather, do I have to pay my staff?

5. I have employees with children at schools and nurseries that are closed because of the severe weather. Do I have to give them time off when they have nowhere to put their children?
