Adverse Weather


We recognise that you may face difficulties attending work and returning home during periods of adverse weather conditions. You have no automatic right to pay in the event of travel delays (unless the travel itself constitutes working time)

You should make every effort to attend work during adverse weather conditions without putting your health and safety at risk. However, if it is not possible for you to attend work, you should contact your line manager as soon as possible. Your manager will discuss the options with you and, depending on the circumstances, one of the following will apply:-

  • you may be permitted to work from home (if practicable);
  • you may be permitted to make up the lost time at another time;
  • you may be permitted to take annual leave;
  • you may be permitted to take unpaid leave.

In the event that the we have to close or scale back our operations temporarily due to adverse weather, you may be laid off work temporarily without pay other than statutory guarantee pay.
