As of January 1, 2020, retail, hospitality and food service establishments with 250 or more employees and 30 locations (including chains and franchise networks) will be subject to significant new obligations under Philadelphia’s Fair Workweek Employment Standards Ordinance. The ordinance requires covered employers to, among other obligations:

  • Post and give 10 days’ advance written notice of work schedules (14 days as of January 1, 2021)
  • Allow employees to decline to work different hours than those posted and pay predictability pay to those who work different hours
  • Provide employees with 9 hours rest after the end of the prior day’s shift or an overnight shift, and pay premium pay to those who voluntarily consent in writing to work such a shift
  • Provide a process for employees to bid on open hours and give existing employees a right of first refusal on new hours before hiring a new employee to work them
  • Maintain records of schedules and schedule changes

The ordinance will be enforced by the Mayor’s Office of Labor, which is in the process of drafting regulations. Littler is pleased to host Manny Citron and Amanda Shimko from the Mayor’s Office of Labor as part of their employer outreach effort as the compliance deadline nears. Bring your questions and comments to this interactive forum.
