When the store remains open, but an employee is unable to report to work due to a natural emergency (defined as an Act of God, out of control of the employee or the Company), the employee may elect one of the following options:

  • Deduct the time missed from work from their remaining PTO allowance, if PTO is available.
  • Declare the time missed from work as an unpaid excused absence, as long as the employee follows proper call-in procedures.  Failure to follow proper call-in procedures may result in an unexcused absence.
  • In Quebec, Employee can use up to 2 Emergency Paid Leave days.
