Whistleblower protection bill signed into law

The Daily Sentinel (Grand Junction): Workers who don’t believe their employers are doing enough to protect them against such things as the coronavirus now have legal protections from retaliation if they speak out, under a bill signed into law this weekend.

That measure, HB1415, was one of several signed by Gov. Jared Polis on Monday and over the weekend.

While inspired by the recent public health crisis, the new law is intended to go further in helping employees feel safe in the workplace.

“In order for Colorado to continue safely reopening, we must ensure that workers’ voices are heard,” said Sen. Robert Rodrigues, D-Denver, who introduced the bill with Sen. Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood, and Reps. Tom Sullivan, D-Centennial, and Leslie Herod, D-Denver.
