Can't get to work because of bad weather? Your legal rights fact checked


The only exception to this would be if your contract has a clause allowing leave if you are unable to attend work due to adverse weather conditions.

If not, you may be forced to take the day as annual leave in order to be paid as usual.

But as the bad weather generally tends to set in towards the end of the year, you may well have used up all your annual leave entitlement.

Ms Chander recommended getting in touch with your manager to see if you can come to an alternative arrangement to make up your lost hours.

Ms Chander said: “They could, for example, work additional time at the end of each day, work through a proportion of their lunch break or use banked lieu hours, if this is an option within the organisation.”
