AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 19 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO MINIMUM HOURS OF WORK FOR BUILDING SERVICE EMPLOYEES.
Synopsis: “This bill would require that employers in large office spaces, retail establishments, and post-secondary academic settings provide a minimum 30 hour work week for building service employees. This would include security personnel (except those who work only weekends), janitors, cleaners, porters, and handy persons. There is an exception if the employee is on voluntary leave during a work week. The Department of Labor is empowered to enforce the provisions, and anyone aggrieved by a violation of the requirement may file a civil suit.”
