New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is set to announce Tuesday that several shopping mall staples are joining the move away from what’s called “on-call scheduling,” which requires hourly employees to be on standby just in case they have to work.

That can throw off planning for child care and finances for workers, who don’t get paid if they find out at the last minute the store doesn’t need them that day. Now more retailers — including Disney, Pacific Sunwear, and Aeropostale — say they will stop using that kind of scheduling.

New York says about 50,000 workers will benefit from the latest round of companies to join.
