Can Your Employer Force You To Work In A Hurricane?

Posted: Updated:

Many businesses and schools were closed on Monday due to the arrival of megastorm  Sandy.  Some have even decided to close on Tuesday in anticipation of a massive cleanup.  

A few businesses did remain open.  Their employees seemed a bit unhappy with that decision.

Many Fox 29 viewers wrote in to our Facebook page asking, "Can my employer fire me if I do not go into work during this dangerous hurricane?"

We decided to ask an attorney this very question.  Amy Feldman called into Good Day this morning to provide some answers.
