Working families need to have flexibility in their work schedules when they have medical emergencies, or to accommodate their educational aspirations or their second job. Employers won't honor those requests unless the government forces them to.
This legislation would be extremely intrusive for business owners and require them to accommodate employee’s scheduling request unless they can show a good reason not to. It may cause employers to reduce the number of workers they have.
