Weather and law. These two matters may appear unrelated, but they’re not. Peoples’ problems caused by weather is where the law comes into play.

Take, for example, extreme hot or cold temperature conditions—the law might forbid eviction or place a moratorium on utility shut-offs for gas, electricity or water. Another example is road, highway, or sidewalk conditions where snow or ice have rendered roadways or walkways dangerous. Who is responsible for cleaning or de-icing, or if an accident happens? Laws, both statutory and case, address these matters.

In addition to state and local laws, federal laws also address weather- and climate-related matters, such as rebuilding after a weather disaster, and protecting health and welfare in the workplace, whether an employee is working inside a building without air conditioning on a hot day or working outdoors in sub-zero weather on a construction site. Federal laws as well as federal agency regulations and policies protect peoples’ lives during extreme weather events.

This guide surveys the laws, regulations, agencies and organizations dealing with weather and sets out those resources required for laymen and lawyer alike researching these issues pertaining to weather and the law.
