You may not live in a jurisdiction that has enacted predictive scheduling legislation, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare for the possibility. “Fair scheduling,” “secure scheduling,” or “fair workweek” laws are designed to protect staff members from the uncertainty of on-call and fluid scheduling, and are being considered (and in some cases, passed) in states and municipalities across the country.
The issue has come to the forefront in recent years as the employment landscape has changed substantially for hourly and part-time workers, many of whom are living from paycheck to paycheck.
Employers have long used just-in-time and just-enough-staff scheduling to limit labor costs and adapt to frequently changing staffing demands, but some policymakers believe these methods put a crippling burden on lower-income working families, men and women working more than one part-time job, and students trying to juggle school and employment.
Are You Ready to Comply With Fair Workweek Laws?
Regardless of your thoughts on these regulations, you may be obligated to adhere to one if it is enacted in your city or state.
Manual Scheduling Is No Longer Practical
First off, if you are still using manual scheduling processes, it’s time to automate. It is virtually impossible to comply with predictive scheduling provisions with basic spreadsheets.
