California Bill Would Give employees Greater Certainty in Work Hours

California state Assemblymembers David Chiu and Shirley Weber introduced AB 357 in February 2015. The "Fair Scheduling Act," if passed, would require employers to provide a schedule to employees at least two weeks in advance. It would give workers additional pay if there are any last minute changes. In restaurants and retail stores, last minute scheduling and cancellations regularly make workers' wages uncertain and inconsistent. Workers with children can be put in an awkward position without flexible childcare. It would apply only to food and retail establishments with 500 or more California employees. California would be the first state in the US to establish such a law. Stay tuned to this blog to see if the bill becomes law in California.
