CITY OF LOS ANGELES PASSES UFCW LOCAL 770-SPONSORED FAIR WORK WEEK ORDINANCE


On November 22, the Los Angeles City Council passed an ordinance requiring retailers with 300 or more employees globally to give their workers in the City of LA at least two weeks’ notice of schedules and provide premium pay for schedule changes. The Fair Work Week Ordinance requires that covered retailers offer work to existing employees before hiring new ones and provide premium pay to workers who have 10 hours or less between shifts, among other wage and hour requirements. Other components of the law include:

  • Fourteen-day advance notice of work schedules

  • Predictability pay for last minute schedule changes or canceled shifts

  • The right to accept or decline extra hours added on short notice

  • Mandatory “rest periods” (workers will have at least 10 hours rest between shifts or will be given additional pay)

  • The right to request scheduling accommodations (right to decline shifts that do not satisfy that requirement, even if their employers offer them overtime pay)

  • Employees will receive a “good faith estimate” for their work hours and will be offered additional hours prior to new/temporary workers being hired

Over 70,000 workers in Los Angeles will be impacted by the law, which will go into effect April 2023. SSDS attorneys provided advice to UFCW Local 770 during the three-year policy-making process. Read more about the Ordinance, here.
