Policy Pulse Survey: Proposed New York State Department of Labor On-call and Call-in Regulations

Click here to complete the Rochester Chamber Policy Pulse survey regarding proposed New York State Department of Labor on-call and call-in regulations.  The deadline to respond is Thursday, December 14.  Responses will be handled in a confidential manner.

In November, Governor Cuomo announced that the New York State Department of Labor planned to advance call-in and on-call scheduling regulations.  Rochester Chamber plans to use results of the Policy Pulse survey to respond during the current 45 day comment period.  Click here to learn more about the proposed regulations.

The proposed regulations are as follows:

  • Reporting to work. An employee who, by request or permission of the employer, reports for work on any shift shall be paid for at least four hours of call-in pay.
  • Unscheduled shift. An employee who, by request or permission of the employer, reports to work for any shift for hours that have not been scheduled at least 14 days in advance of the shift shall be paid an additional two hours of call-in pay.
  • Cancelled shift. An employee whose shift is cancelled within 72 hours of the scheduled start of such shift shall be paid for at least four hours of call-in pay.
  • On-call. An employee who, by request or permission of the employer, is required to be available to report to work for any shift shall be paid for at least four hours of call-in pay.
  • Call for schedule. An employee who, by request or permission of the employer, is required to be in contact with the employer within 72 hours of start of the shift to confirm whether to report to work shall be paid for at least four hours of call-in pay.

Again, the deadline to complete the Policy Pulse survey is Thursday, December 14.
