Labor Schedule Stability
Topic Schedule Stability

Over the past several decades, employers have used new developments in scheduling software to implement “just-in-time” schedules, canceling or creating shifts with little notice in response to changes in product shipments, customer traffic, and even weather. These scheduling practices shift the risk of doing business away from firms and onto U.S. workers and their families. Equitable Growth is working to build the evidence base on how these scheduling practices—and the interventions designed to curb them—affect workers, their families, and the economy as a whole, and what measures can be put into place to provide schedule stability.
