Workers Gain Protections Under Oregon Fair Work Week Law

Leslie McClurg/Capital Public Radio

A frequent complaint from hourly workers in many businesses is that they do not know what hours they will be working until a new schedule is posted. 

Oregon state law now addresses when that posting has to take place. 

Under the Fair Work Week Law, in effect for three weeks now, some large employers now have to post worker schedules two weeks in advance. 

Oregon Working Families pushed hard to get the bill passed, with help from both parties.  A rep from the group joins us with details on who it affects.
