Hope Eastman Provides Commentary in SHRM Article on On-Call Scheduling

Hope Eastman, Employment Law Co-Chair

Hope Eastman provides commentary in Society for Human Resources article, “Businesses Take Another Look at On-Call Scheduling Practices,” by June D. Bell (February 3, 2016). The article addresses on-call scheduling for hourly workers and issues that employers should be aware of.

With respect to the number of employees: “'Have as few employees on call as possible,’ she said. ‘You might need someone to cover for workers who don’t show up or who quit abruptly or with very little notice.’ But otherwise, use the practice judiciously. One option for minimizing the need for on-call workers is to put a very small number of employees on the on-call schedule for a week at a time every four to six weeks but otherwise give them predictable hours, Eastman said.”

Hope is Co-Chair of the firm’s Employment Law practice group.

The rest of Hope's comments and the full article, “Businesses Take Another Look at On-Call Scheduling Practices,” can be found on SHRM website.
