There is no legal right for staff to be paid by an employer for travel delays. However, you may have contractual or custom and practice arrangements in place for this, or you may wish to pay them.
Employees are not legally entitled to receive payment if they are not at work.
Most staff will make every effort to try and get into work however for some it will not be possible. It can be frustrating for those who can get to work while others can't but not all situations are the same. You can decide what is fair and reasonable.
In emergency situations an employee is entitled to take unpaid time off to look after children and other dependants. It's important to point out that this would be classed as ‘Time Off for Dependents’ and as such an employee is entitled to statutory time off. This is unpaid leave although an employee may choose to take it as annual leave.
