This Severe Weather and Disruption to Public Transport Policy is intended to cover the scenario in which employees have difficulty commuting to work as a result of severe weather or disruptions to public transportation.
Suppose an employee does not show up for work or arrives late because of inclement weather or disruptions to public transportation.
In that case, the employer has the right to treat the absence as an unauthorised absence, which means that the employee does not have the right to be paid for the time missed from work. This applies even if the employee has a valid excuse for not reporting to work.
However, both severe weather and disruption to public transport are situations which are out of the employee’s control. Therefore, the employer ought to proceed with the utmost caution; before withholding the employee's pay, an investigation should be conducted into the reasons for the employee's lack of attendance.
When a Severe Weather and Disruption to Public Transport Policy is in place, it not only provides employees with a clear expectation of what is expected of them but also helps lessen the likelihood of confusion and potential conflicts.
