i usually have had the same. but today, they were about as useless as your employees.

is the office closed, or did they elect not to show?

Stress level just tripled.
Sorry to hear this. I hope you are folded into the parent company.

I got paid for sitting around blush.gif Was physically prohibited from trying to go to work on Tuesday, despite the total lack of severe weather. Apparently some roads were closed around the area, but I could easily have gotten in.

Yikes. Sorry to hear this, Alter. I hope the outcome, whatever that may be, is a good one.

I go back and forth on this. On one hand, I can understand why employers wouldn't want to pay employees for not working, but, on the other hand, if you were closed they didn't have any choice.

You are right to some extent. But in a manufacturing company, where we are paid for stuff we manufacture, if we don't manufacture anything for a day, that is an entire day's worth of productivity that has been eaten and gone and we're paying people for it.

That said, we agreed to pay people for the hours we were closed. The crying I'm referencing are the people who didn't even bother to come in even during the hours we were open.

lolz, if a tree fell on a guys house or crushed his car, or he has flooding so bad its coming through his front door, and cars are floating in the streets, do you really expect him or her to go to work?

im not saying you have to pay them, that depends on the company policy and what sick/vacay/personal days the person has and chooses to use, but i think its more than fair for someone in that situation not to make it in to work.
post #38067 of 67953
of course it's fair for him not to come to work. i'm not disputing that.

what i am disputing is whether or not that's my fault, and whether I'm supposed to pay him for it. and the answer is, if you're having car problems i feel bad for you son, you've got vacation and personal days and it's time to take one.
post #38068 of 67953
in that case. we are in full agreement. either no pay, or take a personal day. totally fair imo. and i say that as an employee, not an employer.

Well, there's foreseeable personal crap (car problems) and then there's force majeure-type things (flooding, icy streets, brown-bottle flu) that are beyond anyone's control. In FM type situations, we pay out anyway (goodwill and all that) but expect extra effort to get us back to where we expect to be at month-end. And no, we're not talking extra-hours / overtime.

I think that's quite fair.
