NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Urban Outfitters (URBN - Get Report) stock is rallying 4.68% to $28.65 on Wednesday after the retailer said today that it will no longer schedule employees for on-call shifts at its North America stores, reports.

This action applies to its brands Anthropologie and Free People as well. The Philadelphia-based company currently operates 518 stores in North America.

In April, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent letters to 13 retailers questioning them about on-calling scheduling. Since then, Gap (GPS), Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works have said that they will end on-call shifts. Now, Urban Outfitters joins them.
