Practical Advice for Weathering Pay and Leave Issues Following Hurricane Harvey

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employer is only required to pay non-exempt employees for hours actually worked. In other words, businesses are not required to pay non-exempt employees if they are not working, including times when the employer closes its doors or reduces hours of operation, whether or not forced to do so by inclement weather. Moreover, while some states require some minimum “reporting” or “show up” pay for employees who show up for work and are either turned away at the door or dismissed before the end of their scheduled shifts, Texas is not one of those states.

An important exception to this general rule exists for non-exempt employees who receive fixed salaries for fluctuating hours from week to week. Because these employees must be paid a “fixed” salary, employers must pay these workers their full weekly salary for any week in which any work was performed and pay not dock their pay for days when the office is closed due to inclement weather.
