Employee Pay During Hurricane

If an employee is mandated to stay at work during a hurricane do they get paid their salary for the entire time they are there or do they only get paid for the hours worked?

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes compensation requirements affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.

Under the FLSA, employees are either non-exempt or exempt.

Non-exempt employees must be paid for each and every hour worked. Conversely, exempt employees must be paid their predetermined salary for any workweek during which work is performed regardless of the quantity or quality of such work.

The FLSA requires employees who are suffered or permitted to work to be compensated for such time. Employees who are mandated to stay at work must be paid for any time actually worked and in some cases for on call time. An employee who is required to remain on call on the employer’s premises is considered to be working while on call and must be paid for the time.

HTH! Stay safe!
