Travel disruption and work

Last updated: 16 February 2018

If they can't get to work because of travel disruption, employees should talk to their employer about working from home, taking leave or making up time they have missed.

Rights about travel disruption can be outlined in the employment contract – employees should check this first.

Visit GOV.UK for information on travel disruption and work, including:

  • taking paid holiday
  • working flexibly
  • taking time off to look after children
  • winter weather disruption
