With this current bout of cold weather covering parts of the UK, some staff may find it difficult to get to work and query if they will get paid.
Each case is different and depends on a number of circumstance. Some staff may be unable to make the journey whilst others may be forced to stay at home to look after children whose schools are closed and take a day off work.
If you are unable to get to work or think it is not worth the effort, your employer may not pay you as usually pay is for work you have actually done and the employer is not obliged to pay you.
A review of your contract of employment may also shed some guidance as there may be some provisions covering this situation.
Some employers may choose to use their discretion and pay their staff who have been unable to get to work as a gesture of goodwill.
As you can see there are a number of possibilities including taking a days holiday with the agreement of your employer. No two companies are the same and it is therefore recommended that you discuss the position, or likely situation with your employer at an early opportunity.
