You may not live in an area that has enacted predictive scheduling legislation, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare. “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 proposed (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 significantly 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 save on labor costs and adapt to frequently changing staffing demands, but some policymakers believe these practices put a formidable burden on lower income working families, people working more than one part-time job, and students trying to juggle school and employment.
Are You Ready to Comply With Predictive Scheduling Laws?
Regardless of your opinion 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 old school scheduling methods, it’s time to automate. It is virtually impossible to comply with predictive scheduling provisions with basic spreadsheets.
