Scheduling Mandate Job Killer Bill

CalChamber Policy Advocate Jennifer Barrera describes for the CalChamber Capitol Summit audience on May 17 this year’s approach to scheduling mandates, SB 878 (Leyva; D-Chino), which eliminates worker flexibility and exposes employers to costly penalties, litigation, and government enforcement, by mandating employers in the retail, grocery, or restaurant workplace, including employers who have hybrid operations that include a retail or restaurant section, to provide a 21-day work schedule and then face penalties and litigation if the employer changes the schedule with less than 7 days notice, even when the change is at the request of the employee.
