6-110-040  Advance notice of work schedules.
   (a)   Initial estimate of work schedule.
      (1)   Prior to or on commencement of employment, an Employer shall provide every Covered Employee with a good faith estimate in writing of the Covered Employee's projected days and hours of work for the first ninety days of employment, including:
         (A)   The average number of weekly work hours the Covered Employee can expect to work each week;
         (B)   Whether the Covered Employee can expect to work any on-call shifts;
         (C)   A subset of days and a subset of times or shifts that the Covered Employee can expect to work, or days of the week and times or shifts on which the Covered Employee will not be scheduled to work. The good faith estimate is not a contractual offer binding the Employer, but an estimate made without a good faith basis is a violation of this section.
      (2)   Prior to or on commencement of employment, the Covered Employee may request that the Employer modify the projected days and hours of work provided under subsection (a)(1) of this section. The Employer shall consider any such request, and in its sole discretion may accept or reject the request, provided that the Employer shall notify the Covered Employee of Employer's determination in writing within three days of the request.
   (b)   Advance notice of work schedule.
      (1)   An Employer shall provide its Covered Employees with written notice of work hours by posting the Work Schedule no later than 10 days before the first day of any new schedule from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2022, and shall post the Work Schedule no later than 14 days before the first day of any new Work Schedule beginning July 1, 2022, by posting the Work Schedule within the unit or department or workgroup either in a conspicuous place at the workplace that is readily accessible and visible to all Covered Employees or using the usual methods of communication, or both. The written Work Schedule shall include the shifts and on-call status of all current Covered Employees at that worksite. Additionally, upon written request of a Covered Employee, an Employer shall transmit the Work Schedule by electronic means.
      (2)   An Employer may change a Covered Employee's Work Schedule after it is posted and/or transmitted, up to the deadline articulated in subsection (b)(1) without penalty. After that deadline, such changes shall be subject to the notice and compensation requirements set forth in this chapter.
      (3)   Covered Employees who Self-schedule or work in a venue that regularly hosts Ticketed Events shall not be bound by this subsection (b), nor shall their Employers to the extent that the Covered Employee Self-schedules or works in a venue that regularly hosts Ticketed Events.
      (4)   A Covered Employee who is a victim of Domestic Violence or Sexual Violence or who has a family or household member who is a victim may request that the Covered Employee's Work Schedule not be posted or transmitted to other employees. An oral or written request shall be sufficient and implemented immediately and is sufficient until the Covered Employee gives written permission to post the Covered Employee's schedule. An Employer may request a written statement from the Covered Employee that states that the Covered Employee is, or has a family or household member who is, a victim of Domestic Violence or Sexual Violence. The written statement shall constitute the documentation needed for the Employer to implement the request. The Employer may not require a written statement more than once in a calendar year from any Covered Employee for this purpose.
