Meet Fair Workweek Predictability Pay requirements with ease
What's new ✨
Deputy’s Fair Workweek pay rates are now progressively rolling out to our U.S. customers!
Businesses that use Deputy scheduling features in New York City (Fast Food) and the City of Los Angeles can now apply pay rates that meet Fair Workweek Predictability Pay requirements, also known as Schedule Change Premiums.
Why is this useful for my business? 💪
Designed to streamline your payroll process, Deputy will ensure you comply easily on a city-by-city basis with the following new features:
Accurate Fair Workweek Calculations: Deputy goes beyond basic calculations by factoring in complex elements such as shifts, overtime, breaks, and predictability pay. Now, you can ensure that your employees are compensated fairly in accordance with labor regulations.
Predictability Pay Integration: Keeping up with the intricate requirements of predictability pay is now effortless. Deputy identifies shifts subject to predictability pay and automatically includes them in the calculations, eliminating errors and saving you valuable time.
Employee Attestation: Deputy tracks changes from the predefined schedule and proactively asks employees on clock in and out for the reasons for variations, to ensure you aren’t caught out by last minute changes that create predictability pay premiums. If a shift needs to be extended, team members can give consent to stay late on any device, including the Deputy iOS Kiosk, Android Time Clock and the iOS and Android mobile apps.
Clopening Consideration: Clopenings can be a challenge, but not anymore. Deputy recognizes these instances and ensures that employees receive the compensation they deserve for working consecutive closing and opening shifts, promoting fairness and employee satisfaction.
City-Specific Tailoring: Each city has its unique labor laws. Deputy offers city-specific pay rates for both New York City Fast Food and Los Angeles, adapting to local regulations seamlessly while alleviating the complexity of compliance. More cities to come, including San Francisco, New York Retail, Chicago, Philadelphia and Oregon - stay tuned!
How can I start using these pay rates?
Premium customers in New York (Fast Food industry) and the City of Los Angeles can apply Fair Workweek pay rates in their team member profiles. Refer to this help document on how to set up pay rates.
Together with other Fair Workweek features, we will be rolling out Fair Workweek pay rates to Enterprise customers and other locations (e.g. San Francisco and Oregon) progressively this year. To learn more, please get in touch with your regular Deputy point of contact.
You can also sign up for our Beta program to get first access to new Fair Workweek features.
I’m already compliant with Fair Workweek by using Deputy - how does this impact me?
If you are a Deputy customer who is already Fair Workweek compliant, these new pay rates will not change your current solution and there is no action to take. Your Deputy point of contact will work with you to identify a migration path as well as a timing that suits you to ensure you always have the latest Fair Workweek compliance solution as we continually invest in this space.
