Emergency/Inclement Weather Policy

Each year, more of our clients have experienced issues pertaining to weather related closures or emergencies, yet a policy and procedure rarely appears in their handbook as to how these events are to be handled. Placing one in your handbook that talks about what your offices practice will be is critical. Establishing a phone extension on your phone system where an updated voicemail can be left for employees to access is a great way to tell employees about closings, late openings, etc. Letting your population know what they are responsible for doing in these situations will provide clarity for all involved.
