EEO Legal Solutions will offer a FREE webinar on May 14, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. to explain HB-1136’s changes and to offer practical tips for preparing your workplaces for the real that risks this legislation brings.
On May 6, 2013, Colorado Governor Hickenlooper signed into law HB-1136, which ratchets up remedies available for employees alleging discrimination or harassment under Colorado law. Like HB-1136’s proponents, Governor Hickenlooper largely ignored the pleas of Colorado’s employers, namely, that they are STUCK between the increasing incidence and risk of discrimination allegations on the one side, and the ever-increasing cost of defense on the other. In short, HB-1136 benefits Colorado’s lawyers, not its employers.
HB-1136 takes effect on January 1, 2015, which gives Colorado’s employers over 18 months to build the preventive infrastructure that will help protect them from discrimination claims and enable them fully to take advantage of employer defenses. Employers, however, must get started right away to mitigate the impact of this legislation. EEO Legal Solutions will offer a FREE webinar on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 to address the specific changes HB-1136 brings and how Colorado’s employers can protect their bottomlines. Although this webinar is FREE, registration is required; please follow the link below.
