ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general says another major retailer plans to end on-call scheduling.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says L Brands subsidiary Bath & Body Works has informally agreed to stop that scheduling at the end of the month for employees in all U.S. stores.

Columbus, Ohio-based L Brands confirms it’s being phased out but declined further comment.

Schneiderman says the company’s Victoria’s Secret affiliate previously agreed.

In April, his office wrote to 13 major retailers, questioning the practice of keeping workers on call for shifts on short notice and possible violations of New York’s requirement to pay hourly staff for at least four hours when they report for work.



Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap Inc. have announced similar agreements, including their brands Hollister, Abercrombie Kids, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta.
