Colorado Workers’ Compensation Ballot Approved by Court
The Denver Post reported that the Colorado Supreme Court approved a workers’ compensation ballot posted by the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 union.
Legal challenges were originally charged against the titles of the Colorado workers’ compensation ballot. However, the court upheld that the titles, “Employee Responsibility for Health Insurance” and “Safe Workplace” could appear on the November ballot if the union could retrieve 76,000 certified signatures still needed for approval.
The Colorado Workers’ Compensation ballot would allow injured employees to sue employers outside the Workers’ Compensation system.Back to the Blog
