Iowa says “no” to local government mandates requiring additional pay to employees based on schedule changes. Predictive scheduling laws generally require a minimum amount of notice to be provided for an employee's scheduled shift or if changes are made to an employee's scheduled shift. Predictability pay may be required if shift reductions or changes are made after the initial notice of the shift is provided or if on-call employees aren't ultimately called in to work. Predictive scheduling makes life much easier for employees by allowing them to maintain a steady flow of income, schedule transportation to and from the workplace without continual last-minute changes, allow time for a second job if additional income is needed, organize child care, and even commit to attending educational classes during off hours to further their education. Individual businesses can use predictive scheduling measures, but local governments in Iowa cannot require them.
