Rewrit­ing re­tail rules

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Six re­tail­ers in­clud­ing Dis­ney and Aero­postale have agreed to stop us­ing on-call sched­ul­ing, a sys­tem that re­quires em­ploy­ees to call in be­fore a sched­uled shift to find out if they have to work that day. Worker ad­vo­cates say it leaves em­ploy­ees with un­pre­dictable sched­ules that make it hard for them to hold down other jobs or find child care. The com­pa­nies agreed to give up on-call sched­ul­ing af­ter a group of state at­tor­neys gen­eral launched an in­quiry into the prac­tice. Eric Sch­nei­der­man, the at­tor­ney gen­eral of New York, said the change will help about 50,000 work­ers.
