Whether you call it #predictivescheduling or its other names ( #securescheduling , #fairscheduling , or #fairworkweek ), you’re about to be affected by it if you employ #shiftworkers . Jurisdictions across the U.S.—from #Seattle to #NewYork —are tackling the issue of unpredictable #schedules for hourly #workers with strong mandates for employers. Here’s what you should know: “While each proposal varies, they generally include four common provisions: advance posting of schedules, employer penalties for unexpected schedule changes, burdensome record-keeping requirements and prohibitions on requiring employees to find replacements for scheduled shifts if they are unable to work,” explains the @nrf ( #National Retail Federation). Big thanks to @thehtgroup for this info and graphic - we found it so valuable we just had to share it with our followers as well. By the way - #theHTgroup - we’d love to talk about a partnership!!
Kitchenette electrical chats today for the Utah investment brought back memories...Here were are in Mexico a few years ago where I hosted a reality TV show pilot building homes for very poor families. This family didn’t have electric or running water or floors and barely a roof and the father worked everyday. When I interviewed him I could feel his struggles and humility and when we handed him his new keys we all cried tears of love and joy for him and his family. #laborlaws#protected#hgtv#homeimprovement#dogood#perspective
It is important that all employers in California have an experienced employer defense attorney on their team. These attorneys are well-versed in topics such as:
▫️Discrimination in the workplace
As an employer, you may need advice and counceling in ensuring your business is protected against litigation stemming from violations of the complex federal and state labor laws.

Welcome to Corporate America where slaves now become employees for the slave masters known as employers. 😂
Trend of more firees than hirees living in the #usa high cost of living cities with low-paying jobs that take more than 12 hours a day and expect you to still raise your children after they come from an 8 hours false education school system. Not to mention we have never attended our children's school activities without a hassle with #corporateamerica
On a closer inspection you may actually see yourself among thousands of employees steering the metaphorical ship of a company, chained to the massive oars, much like the galley slaves of the ancient times. Are employers really the, more gruesome, more morbid, more reprehensible versions of the last century plantation owners?
Possibly, yes because these employees don’t have the freedom to say that’s it. They can’t refuse to give in to unusual demands, disagree or even negotiate.
That only shows the desperation of current job seekers that employers can smell from miles away.
If you do manage to get a job, you do everything to make sure you are not going to be filling out yet another job application in the near future. Such a situation is too vulnerable and some employers know just how to take advantage of it.
An employee’s biggest fear is the loss of income.
With families to support, car and home & student loans to repay & rising cost of living, one is willing to do all that it takes to keep the low-pay salaries rolling in.
So there you are, stretched thin between a rock and that hard place you call your job. The grim extreme being instances of work related deaths due to undue pressure, a phenomenon with a name of its own.
Can you do something to crawl out of that pressure spot and change your situation? Can you face your employer and lay down your terms? Can things turn in your favor so you don’t spend every waking hour working for your boss?
In California, if you are fired from your job the employer must pay you your final pay immediately. If you quit, the employer must pay you all your final wages within 72 hours. If they do not pay you within the time period they have to pay you an extra day of wages until they pay, for up to 30 days. #employmentlaw#laborlaws#Californialaws#fired#quit
Thousands of people have been braving below-freezing temperatures and taking to the streets for almost a week in Budapest, Hungary, to protest the country’s far-right prime minister, Viktor Orban, and his government’s increasingly authoritarian behavior. The protests began last Wednesday in response to two new laws passed by Orban’s government: One, which protesters are calling a “slave law,” forces employees to work up to 400 hours of overtime a year and delay payment for it for three years, while the other creates a new system of administrative courts that are controlled by the minister of justice, which could severely undermine judicial independence. The almost daily protests have since become an overall protest against Orban, who has “chipped away at the country’s democratic framework” since he entered office in 2010 by reducing judicial independence, taking control of most state and private media and reshaping the electoral system to favor his party, according to the New York Times. On Monday, at least four opposition lawmakers were assaulted after they visited state media headquarters to call on the broadcasters end their constant support for Orban’s agenda and refusal to report on the protests. Demonstrations of this scale and duration are rare in Hungary, where Orban’s policies are often widely supported despite repeated condemnation from other EU nations, according to the BBC.
