The Restaurant Law Center and others have filed a suit in the Supreme Court of New York, arguing that New York City’s so-called “predictive scheduling” law has caused fast-food businesses to operate under the constant threat of city audits, penalties and modified scheduling premiums — and that it is in fact preempted by New York State law and therefore violates the state constitution and the Municipal Home Rule Law.
