ALBANY, N.Y. >> Disney and Aeropostale are among six retailers that have agreed to stop using on-call scheduling following an inquiry by nine attorneys general.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says about 50,000 workers nationwide will benefit.

On-call scheduling requires employees to call before a scheduled shift to find out if they have to work that day. It affects workers who must arrange child care.

A Disney spokeswoman says the retailer started phasing out on-call scheduling in July 2015.

Rounding out the six companies are Carter’s, David’s Tea, PacSun and Zumiez. They’re among 15 retailers who received a joint letter from the attorneys general.

The other nine companies — American Eagle, Payless, Coach, Forever 21, Vans, Justice Just for Girls, BCBG Maxazria, Tilly’s Inc. and Uniqlo — say they don’t use on-call scheduling or have recently ended it.
