Seattle Passes Secure Scheduling Ordinance

The measure also requires employers to keep records for three years, documenting everything from responses to employee requests for schedule changes to good-faith estimates of the number of hours an employee could expect to work.

Does this mean if an employee asks to work next weekend, the manager has to document that request and retain the record for three years? What’s the benefit to the company of creating and maintaining the records of all the conversations?

When I worked at a Wendy’s during high school, part-time employees constantly requested different hours, depending on their personal circumstances that week (e.g., homework, dates, sick grandmothers). If my understanding is correct, the manager could spend quite a bit of time each day simply transcribing discussions.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
