I think everyone can agree Hurricane Sandy was a serious storm. But now that most of the power is back on, it seems it’s time to get back to business. And for the business of HR, Hurricane Sandy brought along with it some things to consider.
- Can you allow your employees to participate in potentially hazardous workplace cleanup?
- How do you handle the time cards for employees who were on 24-hour call during the storm?
- Do some of my employees have a right to Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave because of the hurricane?
- Can 15 minutes or less save you 15% or more on your car insurance?
These are all appropriate questions. And they are linked to the appropriate answers. You know what to do.
