Jackson Lewis legal alert, 2/28/2019
The New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) is no longer pursuing regulations on “call-in pay,” or predictive scheduling, that would affect most New York employers. The regulations would have required employers, among other things, to provide call-in pay (ranging from two to four hours at the minimum wage) if:
- Employers do not provide non-exempt employees 14 days’ advance notice of their work shift;
- Employers cancel employee shifts without at least 14 days’ advance notice;
- Employers require employees to work “on-call”; or
- Employers require non-exempt employees to report to work but then send them home.
