Predictive Scheduling Ordinance Passes City Council

The Chicago, Illinois, city council unanimously approved a predictive scheduling ordinance. Under the new law, employers will have to give at least 10 days advance notice of workers’ schedules starting July 1, 2020, and that will grow to a minimum of 14 days notice two years later. If an employer changes a worker’s schedule less than two weeks before the shift, it will have to give the worker an hour of “predictability pay” at the regular wage rate.

If an employer cancels or reduces hours within 24 hours of the start of a previously scheduled shift, it will have to pay workers half of what they would have made had they worked. The ordinance does not prevent workers from trading shifts or requesting changes to their schedule. Employers can also change an employee’s hours without penalty when it is mutually agreed upon in writing.
