At least for the balance of the current legislative session, it would appear that serious consideration of the so-called ‘Fair Scheduling’ bill in Massachusetts is over as S.973 was given a study order this week.  An Act Establishing Fair Scheduling for Employees in Massachusetts would mandate that employers must give a worker their work schedule at least 14 days in advance.  Further, the bill provided that employers changing a worker schedule within 14 days be required to pay an additional premium equal to between one and four extra hours of pay.  Although dead for 2016, expect it to be back next year.
