Fair Work Scheduling
To reduce difficulties associated with inadequate, unpredictable, and unstable work schedules for low-income hourly employees, some companies, localities, and states enact policies to promote fair work schedules. States can determine who is eligible for fair work scheduling protections. Policies typically cover at least one of the following aspects of work scheduling: predictability, employee input, and adequacy of hours and compensation.
Rigorous research shows that unpredictable, unstable work schedules have negative consequences for workers and their families, and evaluations of fair work scheduling interventions at the company and local levels are ongoing.
