Support is growing in the Illinois legislature for a measure that would require businesses to provide hourly employees with work schedules at least two weeks in advance.
Under this proposed legislation, if someone’s work schedule is changed after that two-week threshold, the employer could be forced to offer additional “predictability pay” and face potential civil penalties. Additionally, if a worker is notified less than seven days in advance that their shift has been changed or canceled, the employer would need to pay additional “predictability pay.”
Similar versions are already on the books in Oregon, Seattle, New York, and San Francisco, and now Chicago has an ordinance under consideration.
Help us stop efforts to expand this onerous mandate to Illinois!
