Over the past several years, the U.S. has seen a wave of new laws aimed at providing employees with more predictable work schedules. These predictive scheduling laws are meant to provide stability to employees so they can attend to childcare, health, education and, in some cases, second jobs. Early predictive scheduling laws only applied to retail establishments and restaurants with limited penalties and no private right of action, i.e., employees could not sue employers for violations of the law. However, more recent predictive scheduling laws cover a much broader array of industries with far more severe penalties and allow for employee-initiated class action litigation. While these laws are well-intended, they do present significant challenges for employers in terms of staffing, costs, document retention and general compliance.
