The San Diego Chamber was part of a statewide coalition – which included the CalChamber, California Grocers Association, and California Retailers Association – that defeated the proposed SB 878 bill. If passed, the regulation would have required employers to give workers a full 21-day work schedule and 7 days’ notice for any changes. The bill posed a major threat to businesses in industries reliant on schedule flexibility, including: hospitality, retail, and restaurant businesses.

The Chamber was in strong opposition of SB 878, as it would have completely eliminated worker flexibility and exposed employers to costly penalties and litigation – even for hybrid (“on call”) employees or requests explicitly by the workers themselves.
