On December 6, 2018, Philadelphia City Council passed the Fair Workweek Employment Standards Ordinance, which requires covered retail, hotel and food service businesses in Philadelphia to follow specific requirements when scheduling and modifying employees’ work hours. Some of the new requirements within the ordinance are:

  • providing newly hired employees with an advance, written estimate of their work schedule;
  • considering employee work schedule requests;
  • compensating employees for last-minute, employer-initiated schedule changes;  
  • promptly notifying employees of any proposed changes to the posted work schedule; and
  • first offering work to existing employees

The ordinance also requires specific rest periods between shifts and posting notices. The law will go into effect on January 1, 2020, providing Philadelphia employers time to understand and ensure compliance with the law.
