Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. If your employees are salaried, then you have to pay them for the whole day since they were available to work but the work was not available to them. If hourly, you can potentially pay them for just the time worked unless you promised or are contractually required to provide a set of minimum hours--in that case you'd need to cover their hours even if they did not end up working since they were once again available but the work was not available to them. Sincerely, ***** *****
