FAQ’s Available for Rules Regarding Employee Scheduling
The New York State Department of Labor has released a FAQ to help employers better understand recently released proposed regulations regarding employee scheduling and you can find the FAQ’s here. These FAQ’s attempt to clarify some of the terms used in the proposed regulations in advance of the end of the comment period. The comment period ends January 5, 2018.
On December 1st, the NYS Department of Labor published proposed regulations in the NYS Register aimed at curbing certain employer staffing practices. Specifically, the practices of “on-call” and “call-in” scheduling. These proposed rules would revise the call-in pay requirement of the Minimum Wage Order for Miscellaneous Industries and Occupations (12 NYCRR Part 142).
The Chamber has had numerous meetings and discussions on this topic, with many different industries. The impact will be massive and serious. We will be submitting comment to the DOL and will release this letter to the membership.
