Hearings on Employee Scheduling

On Sept. 9, 2017, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that the Commissioner of Labor would hold public hearings on employee scheduling concerns. The New York State Department of Labor used these hearings to solicit public comment on how best to address what's known as "just-in-time," "call-in" or "on-call" scheduling, common practices that allow employers to schedule or cancel workers' shifts just hours before or even after it starts.

Please note, the scope of these hearings focused on scheduling practices for workers subject to the Minimum Wage Order for Miscellaneous Industries and Occupations. Other industries will be evaluated after this review.
