2019 Legislative Preview and Advocacy

Session Description

Mile High SHRM Legislative Director, Colin A. Walker, will provide a preview of the 2019 Colorado legislative session, including HR-related bills likely to be introduced such as Ban the Box, prohibition of requesting compensation history from job applicants, pay equity, and the family leave bill. He will also discuss the implications of the results of the elections which will occur in early November with an emphasis on any shifts in the control of the Colorado Legislature or the Governor’s office. On the federal level, Mr. Walker will discuss proposed paid leave legislation, amendment of the overtime regulations, and developments in the Supreme Court and implications of new Justice appointments. COSHRM’s advocacy program will also be discussed, as well as how individuals and companies can make their views known and participate in the legislative process.
