Oregon's Fair Work Week Act Effective July 1, 2018

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Oregon’s new Fair Work Week Act adds significant challenges and costs for employers operating in the retail, food service, and hospitality industries where schedules and scheduling are often unpredictable. The new changes take effect on July 1, 2018.

Oregon’s new law applies to employers that have 500 or more employees worldwide and operate as a retail establishment, a hospitality establishment, or a food services establishment. The law applies to many chains and franchises that do not directly employ 500 employees, but that operate under a single trade name or in cooperation with other establishments. 

For new employees hired starting July 1, 2018, an employer must provide an employee with a written, good faith estimate of the employee’s work schedule at the time of hire.  The new law contains many requirements of employers and you should consult your counsel for assistance.
