Some workers get snowstorm pay for Sandy

Did you get paid?

Many employers on Long Island applied their snowstorm pay policies to time missed from work as superstorm Sandy blew through.

That was the case at People’s Alliance Federal Credit Union in Hauppauge, where both salaried and hourly workers got paid for the full day Monday, even though the credit union closed at 12:30 p.m. in anticipation of the storm, said Patty O’Connell, human resources vice president.

The credit union closed Tuesday and all employees got paid for the day, said O’Connell, co-chair of the Human Resources Committee of the Hauppauge Industrial Association.

Those who did not make it into work Wednesday when the credit union reopened – just 3 out of 99 employees – had to take a vacation or personal day, she said. According to the snowstorm police, anyone without such days remaining would not get paid.

O’Connell said that many members of the committee have similar policies.
