A California Court of Appeal recently issued its decision in Ward v. Tilly’s, instituting a sweeping change in California’s reporting-time pay rules and now prohibiting a common scheduling practice used by employers throughout the state. Following the Feb. 4 decision, California employers who require employees to call in two hours before a shift to determine whether or not they are needed, and report to work if called in, are now obligated to pay that employee, at a minimum, for two hours of work even if the employee is informed that there is no need to come in to work that day. As a result of this decision, employers should be careful to craft scheduling policies that avoid the same pitfalls seen in this case.
