This proposal, commonly referred to as Predictive Scheduling, would create predictability pay that employers must pay when they make changes to the schedule that are made less than 14 days in advance of the start of the work period. It also mandates employers to keep written records of all changes to an employee’s schedule for four years.

One of the gems at the Chamber is its focus on leadership development through the work of the Southern California Leadership Network (SCLN). Participants take a deep dive into the systems and trends shaping our region; explore solutions to some of our region's most pressing issues; hone their leadership skills; and build relationships with leaders from business, government and the nonprofit sectors. Participants are inspired to address complex issues facing the city and region, prepared to take on leadership roles within their organizations and communities and connected with a network of dynamic leaders to advance lasting, prosperous change.
