New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a suite of legislation dubbed the “Fair Workweek” bills into effect on May 30, 2017, which will limit the scheduling practices and flexibility of certain employers. These laws are aimed at giving retail and fast food employees more notice and predictability in their schedules, while compensating them with extra pay for last-minute schedule changes. They are scheduled to effect November 26, 2017.
