MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 5, 2015) - Ceridian announces features in Dayforce Human Capital Management that support foreseen scheduling and fairness for hourly workers. With San Francisco, California adopting two new pieces of legislation aimed at helping part-time workers achieve work and life balance, retailers are challenged with maintaining predictable schedules for their employees, balanced against business needs and fairness in hours and commissioned sales opportunities.

The Retail Worker Bill of Rights, which takes effect in July 2015, requires that certain retail stores, restaurants and hotel chains in San Francisco post employee schedules 14 days in advance and give workers extra pay for changing a schedule without the required notice, for certain "on-call" hours or for sending an employee home early in certain circumstances. The legislation also requires, among other things, that certain retailers provide part-time workers the same access to scheduling and employer-provided time off as full-time employees, and to first offer additional shifts to existing qualified part-time employees before hiring new employees.

"Hourly employees want, need and desire predictability in their work so they can manage their life. This is not new for retail employees which is why we designed for this, day-one," says John Orr, senior vice president of retail strategy at Ceridian. "Many outdated systems and approaches available in the market cannot support today's needs. If companies take a look at their current system limitations that prevent them from extending care properly to the hourly workers in the form of predictable work and time-off automation, enabled through better engagement using single access from anywhere mobility, their cultural aspirations and brand equity can be realized and their employees will become their best brand ambassadors."

In accordance with many of The Retail Worker Bill Of Rights provisions, Dayforce HCM allows for:

  • Online employee access to real-time schedules to manage their availability, review their work schedule, submit requests for time off and post, pick-up, and swap shifts.
  • Manager ability to post open shifts for employees to pick-up through self-service before looking for additional headcount or temporary workers.
  • Automatic premium pay for employees called into work on short notice.
  • Proactive engagement with employees through use of mobile capabilities allowing employees to access schedules from any device and receive immediate notification of any changes to their schedule.

Dayforce HCM functionality in support of schedule predictablity and fairness for hourly workers is yet another example of Ceridian's continued commitment to support employers subject to San Francisco labor rules, including San Francisco Paid Sick Leave and minimum wage compliance.

"Dayforce HCM technology focuses on intelligent labor forecasting that takes into account the natural ebbs and flows of business, compliance parameters and input from employees helping produce real-time schedules that are accessible, transparent and fair," added Orr. "The result is a more balanced approach that takes the needs of the business and the individual into consideration."
