Work travel dependent upon employer

Matt Berry cleans off snow from the parking lot
of Liberty Fuels in Marion where he works. It was
one of the few businesses open Friday as Winter
Storm Jonah hit Kentucky and much of the U.S.
Although travel may be difficult during these weather conditions like those created by Winter Storm Jonah and a state of emergency is in effect across Kentucky, it does not override attendance requirements between employer and employees. That is determined by your employer's personnel and attendance policy, according to Kentucky Emergency Management.

Counties may declare local states of emergency, and if so, local officials may impose travel restrictions.
