2023 Employment Law Starts with a Bang!

By Michael Santo, COSHRM Legislative Director and Managing Attorney at Bechtel & Santo
The old expression goes that the month of March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, with all due respect to March, the 2023 calendar has come in like a really big lion when it comes to employment issues. And it’s anyone’s guess where it may go.

Here are a few things that occurred just since the flip of the calendar:

  • FTC is "Bah Humbug" About Noncompete Agreements
  • Colorado Remains Under a Declared Public Health Emergency
  • Colorado Comps Order #38 - The Sequel
  • Colorado Legislature Proposes New Bills
  • FAMLI is Here
  • Implementation of Colorado Secured Savings Program has Slight Delay
From Colorado SHRM
We wish you all the best in your personal and professional endeavors in 2023!

Lead by our 2023 Board of Directors and statewide volunteers, we will continue to elevate the workplace in Colorado and drive HR excellence in new and exciting ways. We hope you will join us along the way!
