I need you :(

If a state of emergency has been declared, can the employer make the employees come to work? If no, there obviously can be no reprecussions either then right?

*I googled but can't find anything for Georgia. 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 5 years ago -

It depends. I'll need to do a little more research and get back to you.

Did you move?

Two questions:

1) Is the employee considered essential?
2) What is the employer's policy with regard to inclement weather and/or calling out? 

MusicNote (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

I live in atl. The employees are not essential, we work in the private sector. I can find no sop on inclement weather although the conditions here are still horrid in lots of areas.

There shouldn't be any repercussions, but if the employer wants to piss of their entire workforce, I guess they could make an example.

Employer doesn't have to pay hourly employees, unless they choose to request for personal/vacation pay for their time off.

Employer can also request salaried employees use their personal/vacation time for their days off as well.

Since there is a state of emergency and the government is requesting everyone to stay off the roads, it is unreasonable for an employer to expect employees to show up.

Also, if the place of employment is open, employees should call out and not just let the employer assume they won't be there. That could be grounds for dismissal.

Thanks. :) I made the drive in through metro Atlanta and since the roads were ok, I told my people to come in, as long as it was reasonable. They all showed up! My boss didn't give anyone the option but I told him I wouldn't risk my safety or that of my people. He was good to go after that
