You may not live in an area that has passed predictive scheduling legislation, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare. “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 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.
Employers 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 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 Scheduling Laws?
Regardless of your thoughts on these standards, 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 methods, it’s time to automate. It is virtually impossible to comply with predictive scheduling provisions with basic spreadsheets.
