02-24-17: NEW BILL COULD TIGHTEN RESTRICTIONS ON EMPLOYERS.

OREGON EMPLOYERS WOULD FACE TIGHTER RESTRICTIONS ON SCHEDULING HOURLY WORKERS UNDER A BILL IN THE LEGISLATURE. 40% OF HOURLY WORKERS IN OREGON GET LESS THAN A WEEK’S NOTICE ABOUT THEIR SCHEDULE. IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO ARRANGE CHILD CARE AND SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS. THE BILL IS EXPECTED TO GET A HEARING IN THE SENATE COMMITTEE ON WORKFORCE.
