Pressure for attorney generals in several states has caused several large retailers—including Aéropostale, Pacific Sunwear and Walt Disney—to stop requiring employees to call work before a scheduled shift to find out if they have to work that day. Opponents of on-call scheduling say people should not have to keep their day open and rearrange child care if they don’t work. Some states, including California, require employers to compensate workers if they are required to come in but are not given work, or if they are promised a long shift and given a short one.
