I suppose you'll be wanting the whole day off tomorrow as usual

Is your boss like the money lender scrooge in Christmas Carol ?
If you can't make it to work because of bad weather most employers will dock your pay or expect you to work an extra day
Have you been forced to stay at home today? If so, what stance is your employer taking?
And is it reasonable that employers should not pay staff who can neither get to the office nor work from home?

My last employer would dock money for anything anyway without a genuine reason so yea and no lol... not there now so I can't call them my employer..
Deducted money out of my final pay packet too without explanation..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Funny how a lot of self employed people get up and go to work isn't it?  There are some people who look for excuses not to work. Whilst I think employers should be considerate in the present circumstances they should expect workers to make up some or all of the lost time they are being paid for.

It should be noted that employers can be losing money because of the weather, shops for example and paying staff to stay at home compounds the loss.

This is particularly a problem for small firms that live day-to-day.  The larger firms can absorb some of their losses.

Also why should they get extra paid days off while the employees that made it in don't

I'm quite certain that when I worked for the GLC those that made it in under such circumstances (I was one of those back in the early eighties during the train strikes and bad weather) were given an extra day off within the following month.
