Oregon Could Become First Fair Scheduling State

Oregon is teed up to consider statewide legislation that would require employers to end the abusive practice of unpaid on-call hours and “random scheduling” and require compensation for shifts canceled at the last minute. The bill for Fair Scheduling, proposed by Sen. Michael Dembrow in late September 2016, is supported by Commissioner Steve Novick and could go into effect after September 2017.
