Does your place of work ever close due to the weather?

Are they generous if you are late or need to leave early for safety reasons?

Nope, only time my store will close is if there is a state of emergency.

Not usually, it depends on the type of weather tbh. They are more understanding when you have to leave early though.

I see this on the first delayed opening this winter. I work at a federal govt site. They are hesitent to close/delay openings.

My office is really understand about late arrivals/early departures in general but especially so with the weather.

I live in Ga...when there is even the littlest bit of snow or ice it seems like everything shuts down! People panic and start buying bread, milk, and bottled water if there is even the suggestion of snow...ha ha. I am from North Dakota so all I can do is laugh.

There are always so many accidents when it's snowing/icing during rush hour. I wish more businesses would close or have delayed openings when that happens. There are many businesses that have to be open, so if the ones that can afford to have their employees miss an hour or two, they should be required to stay home so that the roads are emptier and safer for those who have to travel them.

I don't know what my snow day policy is. I sometimes work at schools, so I go by their decision.

This is my first winter at my new job and what I have heard that they don't close.

I am not sure on leaving and coming in late. But I try to make it in on time but things happen and usually I stay the whole time.

Does your place of work ever close due to the weather? No, but I work in a hospital.

Are they generous if you are late or need to leave early for safety reasons? They are if you are late. No one has ever asked to leave early b/c of the weather. Last year we got pounded by a snow storm and the people there working were stuck...and they ended up just working to cover peoples shifts that couldn't make it in and sleeping in empty rooms.
