Colorado Chamber of Commerce

ALERT: Restrictive scheduling bill up for a vote THURSDAY

Tell Lawmakers to OPPOSE HB 1118

House Bill 1118, the so-called “fair workweek” bill, is scheduled to be voted on in the House Business Affairs Committee on Thursday, March 2nd. This bill is one of the worst proposals for business that we’ve seen in years.

The bill would make it nearly impossible for employers to alter worker schedules less than two weeks in advance – regardless of whether a business encounters inclement weather conditions, unexpected absences, other emergencies, or just routine influxes in customers and workload. It also requires businesses to provide employees with several different types of additional compensation for hours not worked, including predictability pay, retention pay and minimum weekly pay.

The Colorado Chamber has organized a grassroots coalition of more than 65 business organizations in opposition to the bill. Our coalition isn’t interested in amendments or “improvements” to the legislation – HB 1118 is beyond fixing and we’re asking lawmakers to kill the bill when it’s heard for a vote on Thursday.

Please join us in putting additional pressure on members of the committee to support the statewide business community and OPPOSE House Bill 1118. You can use our grassroots tool below to easily send a message to legislators:
