Fair Workweek Law
in New Jersey is Coming Soon
While not in place yet, many hospitality workers in New Jersey have come together to push for the ordinance to reach the state. In response to COVID-19, keeping our retail, grocery, warehouse, food production, and food delivery workers safe now and beyond the pandemic is at the heart of the argument for the scheduling law. There are approximately 1 million employees who would be affected by the Fair Workweek laws in New Jersey. These are the key points the NJ Fair Workweek coalition calls for:
Advanced notice on scheduling (14 days)
Hazard pay of time and a half
11 hours of rest between shifts
Offer additional hours to existing employees before hiring new
With Fair Workweek now in effect in several major cities and states across the country, prepare your business by exploring your options.
Empower your teams with the ability to manage schedules, monitor scheduling fees, and properly report premium pay.
