Implementing a Four-Day Workweek: Legal Challenges and Complexities

Before you implement a four-day workweek, make sure you understand the legal and practical implications.

Thinking about a four-day workweek for your workers? Already have one and need a reality check? This topic focuses on the legal challenges and complexities of a four-day workweek including, can the employer unilaterally implement a four-day schedule in both union and nonunion settings; does a four-day schedule create wage and hour issues, like affecting salary basis for exempt employees, requiring increased overtime commitments, limiting the use of child labor, and requiring additional paid breaks; what is the effect of predicting scheduling laws; does a four-day schedule create employment discrimination issues; and what are the OSHA and safety concerns. The information will enable you to spot issues and avoid unintended legal consequences specific to the four-day workweek. You can implement a four-day workweek, but better to know the issues and solve them before they come up.
