If a groundworkers contract states 40 hours a week, no mention of adverse weather arrangements etc., and the person arrives for work to be sent home as the site is frozen, am I right in thinking that they are entitled to be paid?


Many thanks.

Check the staff handbook for any contractual adverse weather policy, but yes, if the employee attends work and the employer chooses to close, in the absence of a contract saying otherwise they're entitled to be paid.


That's only if they're ready and willing to work though - so anyone who said they couldn't make it in may not be entitled to pay!

Oh jolly hockey sticks then! Lads have been told they will not be paid. All turned up for work to be told that the site is shut as it is frozen. It will be even more frozen tomorrow but they have not been told to stay home, so they all intend to turn up for work again.


If it were to get that far, am I right in that there is a choice between ET and County Court?


Thank you Becky X
