Another Interactive Session With the Mayor’s Office of Labor on Predictable Scheduling Compliance for Large Retail, Hospitality and Hotel Establishments and Franchisees in Philadelphia

As of April 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:

  • Provide employees with a good faith estimate of their work schedules upon hire
  • Post and give 10 days' advance written notice of work schedules (14 days as of January 1, 2021)
  • Pay predictability pay for schedule changes, subject to limited exceptions
  • Refrain from disciplining or retaliating against employees who decline to work hours different from those posted
  • 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 during the 9-hour rest period
  • Provide employees with a bidding process and right of first refusal on new hours before hiring a new worker to work them
  • Post notices and maintain records to show compliance with the ordinance

The ordinance will be enforced by the Mayor's Office of Labor, which is finalizing proposed regulations. This will be an interactive session to review the key provisions of the ordinance and proposed regulations and to benchmark and strategize on compliance as the effective date nears.

Registration and Breakfast: 8:00 - 8:30 a.m.

Program: 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
