Oregon Governor Kate Brown approved a new predictive scheduling law Aug. 8, which will require retail, hospitality and food businesses with 500 or more employees to provide work schedules in advance and predictable pay.
The law was passed to provide stability for employees regarding both work schedule and pay.
Oregon is the first state to pass a predictive scheduling law. However, many local jurisdictions have passed similar laws. In 2014, San Francisco became the first city to pass a predictive scheduling law, followed by cities, including Seattle, New York City, Emeryville and San Jose.
This new law requires a posting for all applicable employers, who can provide the posting to employees in both physical and electronic formats.
While various sections of the law become effective on different dates, the posting requirement is effective July 1, 2018.
