Statement On NYS Department of Labor Dropping Predictive Scheduling Revisions

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy issued the following statement in response to the New York State Department of Labor’s decision to drop proposed revisions of predictive scheduling and on call/call in pay regulations:

Duffy said, “Rochester Chamber thanks Governor Cuomo and Department of Labor Commissioner Reardon for listening to the concerns of business and dropping the proposed predictive scheduling regulations. If enacted, the policy would have adversely impacted small and medium-sized businesses which are so integral to Upstate New York’s economy. Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce was pleased to be on the forefront of advocating for our members on this issue by presenting the real-life impact on business owners and their employees directly to the commissioner and her team.  Commissioner Reardon reached out personally to share the decision, and I was glad to have the opportunity to commend her and her team on their efforts. We applaud them for their due diligence in reviewing the intricacies of the regulation.”
