The Bell Policy Center strongly supports House Bill 13-1136, the "Job Protection and Civil Rights Enforcement Act," which will provide meaningful remedies for workers who are not protected by federal law and therefore can't receive damages or attorney fees even after successfully proving discrimination. Here's why we believe in this bill
This bill represents a net opportunity gain for Colorado. It would enable more victims of discrimination and harassment in the workplace to seek redress through the court system, which would protect workers from unfair discriminatory practices. This would contribute to lower employee turnover, better work environments and greater productivity.
The Honorable Clair Levy Chair, House Judiciary Committee State Capitol Denver, Colorado 80203
Dear Representative Levy:
I am writing to express the support of the Bell Policy Center for H.B. 10-1269, "Concerning the creation of remedies available in employment discrimination cases." This legislation will expand remedies available under Colorado's anti-discrimination laws and protect more Coloradans from discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
