Two years ago, Oregon became the first state to pass a predictable scheduling law. A similar measure was recently introduced in the New Jersey legislature; if passed, the measure would have a significant impact on New Jersey businesses with 250 workers or more, especially in retail, hospitality, restaurants and warehouses.
On January 21, 2020, Gov. Phil Murphy signed several new bills into law. These laws aim to increase protections for employees across New Jersey, but they could lead many employers to face considerable risks and challenges.
