SF Chronicle: Don’t rush flexible scheduling law for retail workers

There’s a proverb that says, “He who treads softly goes far.” This notion came to mind recently after I learned that Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, has introduced in the Legislature a retail scheduling mandate known as AB357. It imposes a severe scheduling requirement on all California retailers with 500 or more employees by penalizing the employer for making changes to a work schedule with less than two weeks’ notice of the schedule shift.
