Delayed Start or Cancellation of Business Hours

When start of regular business hours is delayed

The laboratory may delay the start of regular business hours because of weather conditions. Personnel who have been explicitly designated as essential by their line management or whose assigned shift starts or ends outside the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. should report to work as usual.

Employees who do not feel that they can safely drive to the laboratory because of weather or road conditions should contact their supervisor to request a telecommute day or vacation time.

Contact your supervisor if you have questions.

When regular business hours are suspended

The laboratory may not conduct regular operations because of inclement weather. In this case, employees are not required to report to work for their scheduled shifts. Personnel who have been explicitly designated as essential by their line management or whose assigned shift starts or ends outside the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. should report to work as usual. Depending on their job duties and directives from their line management, some employees may be required to telecommute (or use vacation time) in connection with a suspension of laboratory operations. For additional information, see LMS PROC-108:  Telecommuting, available through Inside Argonne.  

Generally, the lab will return the following day to regular business hours.
