State Legislative Wins: ASA Instrumental in Defeating Colorado Predictive Scheduling Bill

Through the remainder of the year in this space, ASA will recap the association’s efforts in successfully defeating or significantly mitigating proposed legislation that would have harmed the staffing industry.

In February, the Colorado legislature introduced and considered HB 23-1118, legislation that would have required businesses to offer additional work hours to existing employees before hiring a new employee, “including hiring through the use of staffing agencies.”

In written opposition testimony, ASA explained that the proposed legislation would deny jobs to thousands of temporary and contract workers—most of whom work full-time workweeks, enjoy the flexibility that temporary work offers, and otherwise would be assigned to work at peak seasons or to fill in for employee absences. These workers would be denied both the opportunity to work and a “bridge” that often leads to permanent employment. The testimony concluded that sacrificing the work opportunities for one group of workers, who generally work full-time workweeks, for the benefit of another group, some of whom may work part time, would make little sense.

ASA also voiced concerns through a meeting, arranged by lobbyist Jay Hicks of Hicks and Associates, with the bill sponsor. As a result of these efforts as well as strong opposition from the business community, the bill died when the legislature adjourned.
