NYS Call-In Pay Proposal Dropped for the Time Being

Compliance & Auditing | Employee Scheduling

While it is not out for good, the NYS Department of Labor has announced that it will no longer be proceeding with the call-in pay regulations initially proposed in November of 2017.

The regulations would have required employers to follow certain scheduling parameters for variable hour employees, such as posting schedules at least 14 days in advance, or canceling shifts within 72 hours.

The regulation proposed five scenarios where employer would have to pay between 2-4 hours of call-in pay.

One employer of a large detailing and car wash service station projected the new regulation was going to cost him over $2 million in new call-in payments. 

So , while the Call-In Pay discussion is off the regulatory table for the moment, there is still a possibility that it may return as a legislative issue at a later time. We'll just have to wait and see.
