We saw reports yesterday that the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) was dropping its regulation requiring employees to be paid “call-in pay” when they are called in to work or have a planned shift cancelled with less than a 14 day notice. The call-in pay requirement was originally written into draft regulations the state agency published back in December 2018 as part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s push to adopt provision of predictive scheduling. The regulations were initially drafted at the request of the Governor who wanted the state to adopt one standard version of a Fair Workweek Law. Despite his efforts, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio pushed forward and implemented a separate Fair Workweek Law in NYC. It was unclear at press time whether the Governor was pulling the plug on the entire predictive scheduling scheme or just the “call-in pay” provisions. We will advise on this again when we get more information on the final regulations.
