Employee ‘rights’ during snow, severe weather
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the metro braced for round two of winter weather Monday, there’s a controversy brewing over whether or not many should head into work.
Some say they’ve been threatened with their jobs if they don’t show up.
“There’s nothing per se illegal about requiring someone to come in in inclement weather and making them show up,” said Robert Hingula, employment lawyer for Polsinelli Shughart.
So, what rights do you have as an employee? And, how can one snow day affect the personal economies of the workers in the metro?
