The Board of the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce has taken a position in opposition to the Fair Workweek Act (O-15-57) as the ordinance is too costly to our members, impossible to enforce and that there are many other laws that regulate the workforce already in place. Below is some information about the Act: Albuquerque City Councilors Isaac Benton and Klarissa Peña introduced the Fair Workweek Act (O -15-57) at a regularly scheduled Albuquerque City Council meeting on Monday, June 22, 2015. The Ordinance is open to comments and modifications prior to final action. The Ordinance was referred to the Finance and Government Operations Committee, which is scheduled to meet August 10, 2015 at 5:00 pm and will likely be heard then. Specifically, the ordinance would require employers to:-Post schedules in writing at least three weeks in advance for full-and part-time, seasonal and temporary employees. -Hold a secret-ballot vote for employees to adopt an alternative schedule.-Pay up to four hours of work if a shift is eliminated or reduced in hours.-Offer additional work to existing employees before hiring any new ones.-Allow employees to swap shifts at will.- Pay idle employees $150 every two weeks to keep them on the payroll when there is no work.-Allow employees to accrue up to 56 hours of sick time a year.
