(PRWEB UK) 17 January 2013
The winter weather forecast is not good. Snow has already arrived in certain parts of the country and forecasters are predicting it could be a harsh winter. The chances are that at some point this winter many UK workers will struggle to get to work – Jobsite helps answer questions such as are you still entitled to be paid? And could you even be disciplined?
For example, if your employer requires you to take a day’s leave, you must be given 2 days advanced notice. There are exceptions to where your employer has to give you notice, and this mainly applies where your holiday entitlement exceeds the statutory minimum of 28 days (including bank holidays).
Jobsite’s legal expert Philip Landau from London law firm Landau Zeffertt Weir concludes, “As can be seen, there is no single, standard approach on workers employment rights in regards to snow. You should hope that your employers will understand the difficulty you have in genuinely dire weather situations. The general accepted guidance is that whether you are paid or not, you should not put yourself in danger by travelling in dangerous conditions.”
