Glenn S. Grindlinger was featured in the New York Post article “Restaurants Fume over Bill That Would Favor Workers with Kids.” Full text can be found in the November 17, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

The New York City restaurant industry has concerns over a bill that “could give scheduling preferences to employees with children or ailing, elderly relatives.”

This may prevent employers from discriminating against workers for suddenly leaving work due to issues with caregivers. The bill may also allow employees to avoid working on the least favorable work days, which would leave the unwanted shifts to individuals without children or ailing relatives.

“It’s not just restaurants,” said Fox Rothschild’s Glenn Grindlinger. “It’s going to be very difficult to schedule people on the weekends because you’re going to get people with children saying we can’t work weekends.”
