Legislation to require “fair scheduling” in the service sector at the national level was expected to be reintroduced as early as yesterday by democratic presidential candidate and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the Senate and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), the top Democrat on the House Labor appropriations subcommittee. The legislation, which will require “fair scheduling” in the service sector across the entire country is identical to the Schedules That Work Act, which was filed by the same legislators back in 2017. The proposal only targets employers in the retail, food service, and cleaning industries requiring them to provide schedules at least two weeks in advance, and to pay workers for last-minute changes or if the employee is sent home early, or before the scheduled end of their work day. The bill would also make it illegal for all companies with more than 15 employees to retaliate against workers who request a specific shift schedule for family, health, or job training reason. Although it is likely not to gain much traction in Congress, several cities (including Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and the state of Oregon) have already adopted similar laws and more states are considering it.
