36. I don't think anyone had to work without pay.

I interpreted the OP as meaning that, for four days after Sandy, the company was closed, so no one could work, and they won't get paid for those days. My guess is that the employer can get away with not paying them for time they didn't work, unless there's a contract to the contrary (a collective bargaining agreement or an employee manual that a court would treat as a contract).

Some of the employers in the NYC area are paying workers for the days of closure, even though they didn't work. As the OP shows, that's a good move in terms of employee morale, but it's certainly costly to the employer.
