(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Just in time for Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping, San Francisco Supervisors have unanimously approved a retail workers bill of rights.
It's the country's first retail worker bill of rights, requiring employers to post workers schedules at least two weeks in advance.
The goal is to limit employer habits of scheduling workers to shifts with little notice.
If there's a last minute schedule change, any on call hours, or if a worker is sent home before their assigned shift ends, they'll have to be compensated.
Retail chains in San Francisco will also be required to offer part time workers hours before hiring new employees.
It’s a bill that some believe will grow beyond San Francisco and beyond retail chains.
