There may be times when emergencies, such as severe weather, fires, or power failures may disrupt our normal business operations. In extreme cases, these circumstances may require that we close the work facility. Any closure will be at the discretion of the Executive Director.
When a facility is officially closed due to emergency conditions, the time off from scheduled work will be paid. However, if your position does not require you to work in the office, ie: field staff, you will be required to report to work as scheduled.
If Big Sandy ADD is not officially closed during an emergency, you are expected to report to work. If you do not report to work, you will not be paid for the time off. However, you may request to use your available paid time off, such as annual leave.
There may also be some situations where we ask employees in essential operations to work on a day when we are officially closed due to an emergency. In these circumstances, those employees who work will receive their regular pay.
