Fair Workweek Law
in Chicago Explained
The recent Chicago Fair Workweek regulations apply to the seven “covered” industries (Restaurants, Retail, Building Services, Hotels, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Warehouse Services) who make less than $26/hr or $50,000/year. The employer should also have less than 100 employees globally, or 250 employees and 30 locations for a restaurant.
Maintaining compliance with the ordinance can be challenging, so you need a scheduling and workforce management tool you can depend on. To avoid fees, pay attention to these key points:
At least 10 days
notice on scheduling
A good faith estimate of weekly hours, days, and shift times
10 hours of rest
Employees have the right to decline previously unscheduled hours
