Webinar: Predictable and Flexible Scheduling Laws - State and Local Compliance Challenges

Bruce Sarchet

In an effort to make workplaces more "family friendly," an increasing number of state and local governments are evaluating and adopting new laws dealing with a basic part of daily work - the work schedule.

  • Predictable scheduling laws require employers to provide advance notice to employees of work schedules, and pay penalties for making changes to posted work schedules.
  • Flexible scheduling laws create a legally protected right for employees to seek accommodations and changes in their schedules.
