With its egregious soda tax legislation having been ratified by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court a few months ago, the Philadelphia City Council has now turned its eye to another business-killing idea. They announced they’ll hold a public hearing on October 30 to review restrictive scheduling legislation pending before the body. The legislation, introduced back in June, requires employers to provide employees with a minimum notice of their work schedule at least two weeks in advance of the worker being scheduled to work. Changes to the employee’s schedule made within that 2 week window will trigger penalty payments from the employer. There are supposed to be changes being made to ease the concerns of the business community, but those proposed changes have not yet been made public. We would encourage all those in the Philadelphia area who can attend the hearing to do so on the 30th.
