Variable work scheduling practices such as call-in shifts and on-call arrangements create some gray areas in terms of what is considered “work” time that therefore needs to be compensated. As a result of these gray areas, as well as complaints from employees who have variable work schedules, various pieces of legislation have been introduced—and litigation enacted—intended curb or place limitations on employers’ use of such schedules, and in some cases, ensure employees are fairly compensated.

AEIS is one of the most reputable and longstanding employment law conferences in the nation. Learn about the 2017 AEIS being held in Las Vegas this November.
