The ordinance is still being written, but it is expected to include:
- A guarantee that workers get at least 11 hours of down time between shifts
- A requirement that workers get schedules a week in advance, or else be paid time-and-a-half if shifts are added inside that timeframe
A requirement that employers pay employees for a few hours of work not performed if shifts are taken away
Several of these components are being pushed by Working Washington, the same group that successfully fought for a $15 minimum wage in Seattle.
