    Okay, let me make this as clear as I possibly can.

    Are there Federal or State guidelines that states how employee's are to be paid if a disaster hits?

    No. There aren't.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      So are you saying that it depends on what the definition of is is?

        cbg has it right.

        Let's be realistic here. Every company should have a disaster recovery plan (for immediate actions) and a business recovery plan (for long-term disruptions). Many, many companies don't. The larger ones, governments, etc. do. but there is no law that requires them to.

        I know of one national company that, during the period of time after 9/11 when flights were grounded, that ran a "pony express" for payroll checks. The HQ ran payroll and somebody drove to the local sites and delivered their paychecks; then people from that location fanned out and delivered checks to more distant sites. And so on, and so on. Took a couple of days, but I thought it was a very creative solution.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
