As the temperature drops and the big chill kicks in, HRM got the legal low-down on how HR should handle snow-days.

    I agree we would have a duty to accommodate but you are saying we have to pay them!!!!! I am pretty sure you are wrong. There is nothing in the Code to say we pay. We can accommodate different shifts/hours but we pay for hours worked do not pay when hours are not worked.

    Are there pay obligations when the employer chooses to CLOSE due to weather?

    ESA notes the "The three hour rule" does not apply - where the cause of the employee not being able to work at least three hours was beyond the employers control. If an employer closes due to severe weather this clause would kick in.
