NYSBA Submits Written Comments on DOL Scheduling Regulations

NYSBA provided written testimony to the New York State Senate’s Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business and the Senate Administrative Regulations Review Commission as well as written comments to The New York State Department of Labor regarding the recently released Department of Labor draft regulation.  The draft regulations would require employers pay employees, who come to work for a shift not scheduled a minimum of 14 days in advance, an additional two hours of call-in-pay. Employers are also required to pay employees, who have a shift cancelled less than seventy-two hours prior to the start of their shift, an additional four hours of call-in-pay. It would also require employers that ask workers to call within 72 hours of the beginning of the shift to confirm whether or not to report to work, to pay an additional four hours of call-in-pay.
