Office Closures Lead To Employment Issues

Office Closures Lead To Employment Issues

The severe winter storms can bring employment issues when employees work from home.

Unexpected office closures due to weather, earthquakes, and other unanticipated events often lead to a variety of employment law/HR issues for employers and employees. Businesses should plan ahead for those unexpected closures so that they are prepared to handle safety, communication, productivity and many other issues.

In my January 2014 post for Maximize Social Business, I examine two social media/technology issues and also the important (and sometimes confusing) issues of wage payment during office closures. The post is titled “Workplace Woes During Weather Worries” but is certainly applicable to closures due to other events besides the recent Polar Vortex.
