    So, how’d it all turn out in the

    Colorado Legislature?

    Presented by: Michael Santo

    That’s a darn good question.  In short, the last few days of the Colorado legislative session was a frequently-changing landscape right up until the end.  Fortunately, with the session officially coming to a close, we now have a much better idea of the landscape ahead for Colorado employers.  For example, whatever became of the efforts to implement a FAMLI bill (i.e., did a bill pass that set out guidelines for dates for future implementation)?  Did the final version of the Equal Pay Act pass and provide Colorado employers guidance on how to implement a compensation system, job descriptions, etc.?  And what about all the bills regarding use of convictions at the hiring stage; some of which weren’t proposed until late April? 

    These and many other issues will be discussed at this upcoming WCHRA special session, which is, in essence, a follow-up to the Spring Conference.  At this session, Michael Santo, of Bechtel Santo & Severn, will discuss all the final legislative changes and provide tips, insights, policies/practices, etc. to ensure that your organization is ready for and complying with the new legal changes.

    When you join us for this Special Session, you'll also be supporting SHRM Foundation. 50% of registration proceeds will be donated directly to the Foundation.
