Managing employees through extreme weather can be challenging. As severe flooding continues to impact Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales, businesses across these regions may face difficult decisions regarding workplaces and staff.

What are your obligations as an employer? How can you protect your business and staff?

Preparing for extreme weather

With severe flooding in Europe, wildfires in the US, and flooding in Asia and Australia, we need to be prepared. Businesses will have to face extreme weather conditions and they must adapt.

Employsure has been actively supporting our clients through this challenging period. We’re helping them stay on top of their employment and health and safety responsibilities.

In these times of need, Employsure is committed to supporting all businesses and have made the following resources available to everyone at no cost.

We have prepared the below resources to assist you to navigate managing employees and health and safety during extreme weather events:

  • FAQ’s with answers and options to common questions asked during extreme weather events

  • Stand down fact sheet outlining when you can stand down your employees under the Fair Work Act

  • Memorandum template to provide to your employees should you be required to stand down employees due to the floods

  • Emergency procedures to manage your health and safety responsibilities during building emergencies, including floods.
