This Adverse Weather and Extreme Circumstances Policy is designed to cover situations where employees have difficulty travelling to and from work due to severe weather or public transport problems.
It is the responsibility of the employees to make every effort to attend work in accordance with their contract of employment in all circumstances. If an employee does not turn up for work, or turns up late because of adverse weather or disruptions to public transport this amounts to an unauthorised absence, which means that the employee is not entitled to be paid. Unjustified or unacceptable absence or lateness may also give rise to disciplinary action.
Bad weather and public transport problems are circumstances outside employees' control, thus, lateness or failure to attend work as a result of extreme circumstances should not be treated unreasonably by employers. It is a matter of employment best practice to have in place an Adverse Weather and Extreme Circumstances Policy that clearly sets out the duties of employees and outlines the appropriate procedures for employees to follow during periods of extreme weather conditions or other emergency circumstances.
This Adverse Weather and Extreme Circumstances Policy contains the following clauses:
- Policy Statement
- Employees’ Responsibilities
- Guidelines for Employees
- Leaving Work Early
- Responsibilities of Managers
This Adverse Weather and Extreme Circumstances Policy template is in Microsoft Word format, written in plain English, easy to use and edit.
