In inclement weather, employees should use their best judgment in trying to get to work. Employees not choosing to work due to weather conditions must use accrued vacation leave, earned compensatory time, or with supervisor approval may be allowed to make up missed work time within the work week. If an employee’s work site is closed, the employee shall be considered to be on a “ready to work” status. This means that the employee is ready and available to work and be called back to work at any time when the work site is re-opened. Employees in this “ready to work” status will be compensated. If the weather is so severe that most local businesses are closed, the absence will be excused and compensated upon approval of the Administrative Office.
