Didn't get paid for last Saturday!

November 2nd, 2008 at 06:39 am

Last Saturday when I went to work, there was a power outage so we had to close the office. Since I have only been employed there starting in July (and only 2 Saturdays/month, I had no idea what the policy was regarding "Acts of God" incidences (or if there even was a policy). It seems that since I work in small offices both on a full and part time basis, neither of them are very efficient when it comes to office policy. It often turns out to be a "play it by ear" method when certain issues come up. Also, the rules often change since nothing is set in stone! Office manuals regarding policies are non-existent, or at least I was never given copies of them for the offices where I am employed.

Since I only work there Saturdays, I have no benefits; therefore, taking a personal day was not an option either. I'm thinking that perhaps the full-time employees got some kind of compensation, but I can't be sure of that.

So I was just wondering how many people here are paid for instances like I mentioned (due to power outage or weather-related office closings).

    I get paid if that happens but I'm on salary so that may be the reason.
