Victoria’s Key is paying the cost for its less-than-angelic therapy of workers: Not Quite three years following a retail employee sued the lingerie large over its rampant use of “call in” shifts, compared to has decided to to to stay the case for $12 million.
What is a callin or “on call” change, you inquire? It is an idea several retail workers know all too well: An employer over-schedules a change, just in case the retailer is busier than expected at any at any moment. The employee who is “on-call” is then required to contact the shop just before the begin of her hypothetical change to be informed whether she is needed. If she is not, she is basically lost each and every one of her day ready to possibly perform or portion, and worst of all, is not compensated for any of it. In a phrase, it is bullshit.
