Payment of Wages During Storm Absences

With Storm Brian on the way just days after the whole country was on red alert due to Storm Ophelia, employers may once again need to consider how they deal with the "grey" area of paying employees when it is unsafe to attend work due to unforeseen weather circumstances arising.

Payment of Wages Act

The recent High Court Case of Cleary & Ors v B&Q Ireland Ltd provided some clarifications in respect of a number of matters regarding the interpretation of wording in respect of a "discretionary" bonus scheme and whether a contract can be unilaterally changed by an employer with retrospective effect. The case also dealt with the issue of whether a "zone allowance" for Dublin based staff constituted wages or was correctly classified as an expense.
