CO: New Mandate to Stifle Small Business

Date: 02/13/2006 | Category: Business | Author: developers

In Colorado, Senate Bill 66 passed the Senate Education Committee by a 4 to 3 vote. The bill would require every Colorado company that employs at least 10 people to give parents as much as five hours a month of unpaid leave to attend school functions.According to surveys, students appreciate having parents present at plays and assemblies. Parents also say it would be helpful to receive time off to meet with teachers and work more closely with children on campus.

While the bill would not place a major burden on most businesses, opponents claim would almost certainly create difficulties for small firms that depend on people to fill scheduled slots and simply don’t have ready replacements.
