Newsday: 6 Retailers Agree to end On-Call Shift Scheduling
ALBANY, N.Y. – Six retailers have agreed to stop using on-call shift scheduling following an inquiry by a coalition of nine attorneys general.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says an estimated 50,000 workers nationwide will benefit from the agreement.
On-call shift scheduling requires employees to call work prior to a scheduled shift to find out if they have to work that day. It’s a burden for workers who need to arrange child care.
