Inclement Weather
Updated On: Dec 03, 2012 (20:39:00)

With winter weather drawing closer, we wanted to answer some frequently asked questions about OHSU’s inclement weather procedures. The relevant contract language can be found at the end of this article.  

Q: Who declares "inclement weather?"
A: The OHSU Provost or his/her designee.
 
Q: What does a declaration of inclement weather do for me?
A: It means that if you get to work within two hours of your regular start time, or if you are sent home early, you will be paid for the whole day. If your work area closes before you leave home, you may use vacation or comp time to cover your absence.
 
Q: Why do I have to use up my vacation or comp time when it's not my fault it snowed?
A: The contract does not require OHSU to pay for an employee's lost time when that loss is outside the employer's control. 
 
Q: What happens if there is no declaration of inclement weather and I still can't get to work because of weather conditions where I live?
A: Your missed time would be considered leave without pay, unless you specifically request to use vacation or comp time. If you so request, that request will be granted.
 
Q: If I miss work due to the weather, can I make it up instead of using paid leave?
A: Yes, if your boss agrees and if it doesn't result in overtime.
 
Applicable Contract Language (note that the inclement-weather section is  no longer named “inclement weather”):
 
7.3 Report Pay. An employee who is scheduled for work, does not receive notice of shift cancellation in accordance with Section 19.10.2, and reports for work shall be paid a minimum of four (4) hours. Where the scheduled shift is less than four (4) hours in duration, however, the employee shall be paid for the hours scheduled. In the event that operations are closed or curtailed due to inclement weather, Section 7.12.4 shall control.
 
7.12.4 Closing, curtailment or delayed start of operations. When weather conditions require cancellation of a shift or a delayed start of operations, the two (2) hour notice provision of Section 19.10.2 shall apply. In such circumstances, the notice provisions of Section 9.3 shall not apply. When weather conditions require the closing or curtailing of operations after the employee reports to work, the employee shall be paid for the remainder of his/her work shift. 

 

19.10.2 Notice of shift cancellation or curtailment at beginning of shift. An employee shall be given notice of shift cancellation, or of shift curtailment at the beginning of the shift, a minimum of two (2) hours prior to the scheduled start time of the shift.

9.3 Change in Reporting Time. Reporting time is the time designated or recognized as the start of the daily work shift or schedule. When the Employer wishes to change an employee’s reporting time the following rules will apply:
   a.     One hour or less. An employee’s reporting time may be changed up to one (1) hour earlier or one (1) hour later, without penalty, if the employee is notified a minimum of twelve (12) hours before the next regularly scheduled reporting time. If the employee’s reporting time is changed without the required notice, the employee shall be entitled to payment at the premium rate of time and one-half (l ½) the straight rate of pay for the first two (2) hours worked.
   b.     More than one hour, up to two hours. An employee’s reporting time may be changed more than one (1) hour and up to two (2) hours earlier, or more than one (1) hour and up to two (2) hours later, without penalty, if the employee is notified a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours before the next regularly scheduled reporting time. If the employee’s reporting time is changed without the required notice, the employee shall be entitled to payment at the premium rate of time and one-half (l ½) the straight rate of pay for the first two (2) hours worked.
   c.     More than two hours. An employee’s reporting time may be changed more than two (2) hours earlier or two (2) hours later, without penalty, if the employee is notified a minimum of five (5) days in advance. If the employee’s reporting time is changed without the required notice, the employee shall be entitled to payment at the premium rate of time and one-half (1 ½) the straight rate of pay for all time worked before or after his/her regularly scheduled shift until the notice requirement is met. When an employee’s reporting time is changed without the required notice for one (1) day only, the employee shall be entitled to payment at time and one-half (1 ½) for the first two (2) hours worked.
   d.    Employee requests. When a change in reporting time is requested by an employee and approved by the Employer, this section shall not apply.
   e.     Curtailment at beginning of shift. In the event that an employee is notified of a later reporting time with the same ending time for the shift, this section shall not apply. Instead, the two (2) hour notice provision of Section 19.10.2 shall apply.
