Hal – The Maryland Fair Scheduling Act (HB0349/SB0345) would rectify an injustice frequently visited on retail and restaurant workers. Currently, employers can demand that employees appear on short notice and end shifts prematurely if traffic is slow.

Simply put, retail employees must be available at their manager’s beck and call if they wish to keep their job. Moreover, they are sometimes put to the time and expense of commuting without any recompense if their shift is abruptly canceled. Let’s give them a break!
