The recent snowfall and falling temperatures have resulted in operational difficulties for a number of businesses who have been adversely affected by both a reduction in the volume of work available and the number of staff who have been able to attend the workplace.

 

Whilst most employers have policies in place to deal with sickness related absences, more often than not they have no provisions governing the rules that will apply where employees are absent from work because of factors that are outwith their control.

 

Public opinion remains divided as governing bodies are yet to produce official statements and reports about current situation.
