ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general says Pier 1 Imports will end on-call shifts at stores across New York by Jan. 17 and do it nationally by the end of March.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the retailer plans to require managers post store work schedules at least 10 to 14 days in advance.

Pier 1 Imports, which operates more than 1,000 stores in North America, did not immediately respond Thursday to requests for comment.

Schneiderman’s office has sent letters to 14 companies questioning the practice of requiring workers remain available for last-minute shifts.

Retailers that have agreed to stop include Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, J.Crew, Urban Outfitters, Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret.

The other companies contacted say they weren’t using on-call scheduling.
