  • Question about natural disasters in nc North Carolina

    can you be fired for missing work on account of a natural disaster, like all the snow we have had?

  • #2
    Generally for snow yes unless you would have a binding employment contract to the contrary.

    If the governor of your state or mayor of your city for example *requires* everyone to stay off the roads, then you might have a public policy or safety case for not going in.

      May I ask, have you been fired or threatened that you would be fired for missing work?
      Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

      I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.

        Yea, poster really didn't give any details at all. The more info you furnish us the better we can help you/answer you. (though my answer stands at the moment)
