The California Labor Federation made it abundantly clear this week that a top priority for the organization in 2016 is winning passage of so-called predictive scheduling.  The scheduling initiative (S878) requires retail and restaurant employers to provide a firm work schedule to all its employees with a one-week advance notice for a three-week work schedule.  Further, it provides that if an employer changes the work schedule with less than a one week notice, the worker will receive one hour bonus pay and time and a half for their next shift if the schedule is changed within 24 hour of the shift beginning.
