National Grid will pay damages to employees not paid during Sandy

IN A SETTLEMENT ANNOUNCED Friday, National Grid agreed to pay out lump sums of $750 to more than 2,000 employees who were not paid for work during Hurricane Sandy due to problems with the utility's payroll system.

BOSTON - National Grid has agreed to pay nearly $2 million in damages to its Massachusetts employees who were not paid for work during Hurricane Sandy last year, Boston.com reported Friday.

Under a settlement with Attorney General Martha C. Coakley, National Grid will pay out a lump sum of $750 to more than 2,000 hourly workers who waited until early this year to be paid for their work during the October 2012 hurricane.

The utility will also pay $270,000 in penalties to the state for failing to pay the employees by the December 2012 deadline due to problems with National Grid’s payroll system.

National Grid spokeswoman Jackie Barry said that the company regrets the inconvenience and frustration caused by the delay and added that National Grid will absorb the cost of the payouts, rather than passing the cost on to customers.

A number of management employees affected by the payroll malfunction will also receive a $750 lump sum, although these payouts were not included in the settlement with Coakley, according to the Boston.com report.
