New scheduling rules for hourly workers

Seattle has approved a new law to give hourly retail and food service workers more predictability in their scheduling.

SEATTLE (KING) - Seattle has approved a new law to give hourly retail and food service workers more predictability in their scheduling.
 
The measure requires employers schedule shifts 14 days in advance and pay workers extra for certain last minute scheduling changes.
 
Seattle is the second major U.S. city behind San Francisco to pass such scheduling legislation.

Supporters say it would address the erratic schedules and fluctuating work hours that make it difficult for worker to juggle school, family life and plan a future.
