You may not live in a jurisdiction that has enacted predictive scheduling legislation, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get ready. “Fair scheduling,” “secure scheduling,” or “fair workweek” laws are designed to protect workers from the uncertainty of on-call and fluid scheduling, and are being debated (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 considerably for hourly and part-time workers, many of whom are living from paycheck to paycheck.
Business owners have long used just-in-time and just-enough-staff scheduling to manage labor costs and adapt to frequently changing staffing demands, but some policymakers believe these procedures put a formidable 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 viewpoint on these standards, you may be obligated to adhere to one if it is passed in your city or state.
Manual Scheduling Is No Longer Practical
First off, if you are still using old school scheduling methods, it’s time to automate. It is virtually impossible to comply with predictive scheduling standards with basic spreadsheets.
