    • Rheanna brought up about Senate Bill 828 which will be the primary legislative bill to mandate "predictive scheduling" on Oregon employers.  Senate Bill 828 requires that an employer pays a minimum of four hours when (1) an employee calls into work but the employee does not work the shift in its entirety, or (2) when an employee is told with less than 24 hours' notice that their upcoming shift is not needed or that the hours in the shift have been reduced.  Senate Bill 828 has much more stringent provisions for restaurants, hospitality establishments and retailers.  It requires an interactive scheduling process in which an employer must accommodate employee scheduling requests.  It also requires that schedules be set 14 days in advance.  For any changes made to an employee's schedule with fewer than 14 days' notice, it requires one hour of additional pay per any change that does not result in a loss of hours worked, and it requires one-half rate of pay for any scheduling change that results in a loss of hours.
    • “Hot Topics”

      • Minimum Wage Reminder – minimum wage goes up to $10 per hour effective 7/1
      • BOLI Manufacturing Calculation – calculation is changing.  Working employees over 10 hours per day and/or over 40 hours per week.  Employers may have to pay overtime for both; could create double payment in some instances.  It doesn’t affect mills, unions, etc.
      • Marketing – Ashley is the DC SHRM Marketing Representative.  DC SHRM will have a Facebook page, LinkedIn, etc.  Ashley will work hand-in-hand with Leann and Rheanna.  If members have Marketing ideas, please share them with Ashley.
