Unless you have a written policy that states otherwise, you are not required under law to pay an hourly employee for an hour they do not work (including days you decide to close and therefore they are not on the schedule). Many companies choose to pay their hourly employees their 8 hours for days the companies are closed as a way to thank and reward employees by the law does not require you to do this.
