(a) Subject to the limitations in this chapter, when an Employer needs to fill additional shifts of work, the Employer shall first offer additional shifts of work to existing Covered Employees if the Covered Employees are qualified to do the additional work, as determined by the Employer. If offered shifts are not accepted by Covered Employees, the shifts shall be offered to temporary or seasonal workers who have worked on behalf of the Employer for two or more weeks.
(b) An Employer shall distribute additional shifts in compliance with subsection (a), provided that:
(1) the Employer's system for distribution of hours must not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, age, or marital or familial status;
(2) whenever practicable, the Employer shall first offer those hours to part-time Covered Employees.
(c) This section shall not be construed to require any employer to schedule employees to work hours required to be paid at a premium rate.
