Employment Law This Week (Episode 75: Week of June 12, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Jeffrey M. Landes, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

As Mr. Landes discusses, New York City has enacted “fair workweek” legislation. Mayor Bill de Blasio has signed a package of bills into law limiting scheduling flexibility for fast-food and retail employers. New York City is the third major city in the United States, after San Francisco and Seattle, to enact this kind of legislation. The bills require fast-food employers to provide new hires with good-faith estimates of the number of hours that they will work per week and to pay workers a premium for scheduling changes made less than 14 days in advance.
