New York Department of Labor Proposes Scheduling Regulations

    Big changes may be in store for employers in New York who require employees to be “on call” or who are accustomed to making quick changes to employee schedules, including canceling shifts when customer or client demand changes.

    On November 10, 2017, the New York State Department of Labor (NYDOL) released the text of anticipated proposed regulations to the wage order covering miscellaneous industries and occupations (which encompasses most employers other than restaurants and hotels). The proposed regulations address employer scheduling practices, including schedule changes and “on-call” time.

    The proposed regulations would revise the Miscellaneous Industries Wage Order’s call-in pay requirements. They also would impose new requirements on employers.  Please click here to read the additional new requirements on employers in a summary of the proposed regulations prepared by Jackson Lewis attorneys Jeff Brecher, Rich Greenberg, Dan Jacobs, Jonathan Kozak, Noel Tripp, and Sarah Hook.
