  • "Act of God"

    We are roofing company located in Northern California. I have read Sections 4(A) and 10(C) of the labor code, and I am wondering if weather (ie rain specifically) would constitute an " Act of God". Often times we will go to work even if it looks like rain, if we show up and I call them off in an hour or two would we be subject to reporting time pay? Thank you.

      Thank you!

      Would you be able to tell me where in writing I can find this? Thank you very much for your reply.

          Redwood Roofers - I'm going to make your question/post into it's own new thread. Please do not post your question to another poster's old thread - in this case one from 2007. Thanks.

            I am not aware of anything in writing that is on point with the applicability of reporting time pay in an inclement weather situation. Having said that, I have spoken with the DLSE about this before and they were quick to answer that yes, a rain-out is considered an act of god.

              The key phrase seems to be "not within the employer's control". Of course, CA-DLSE as always gets the last word.

                Yes, agreed. The DLSE gives a bit of insight into what they consider to be an act of god or other cause that is outside of the employers control in a 1989 opinion letter. http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/opinions/1989-03-08.pdf
