Many employers, particularly in retail and hospitality, face scheduling challenges related to fluctuating demand, employee absences and turnover, and juggling part-time workers. This can be hard on employees, making it difficult to plan for family care, take on another job, and have predictable income. Low income workers, and often women, suffer most from unpredictable schedules. In response, San Francisco, Seattle and New York have set the trend toward employee-friendly legislation that mandates “predictive scheduling” – making it easier for hourly workers to know when their next shift is planned. Bills are active in at least 13 states, D.C, and many local jurisdictions. So, where does that leave you? This session will cover:
- Predictive scheduling rules across jurisdictions.
- Differences in retail, food service and hospitality industries.
- Predictability pay – who gets it and when.
- Short notice staffing challenges.
- Best practices for managing hours originally scheduled and hours actually worked.
