Legal Alert: New Leave Requirements are Scheduled to Accompany the Upcoming Fall School Year
On June 1, 2009, Colorado's Governor, A. William Ritter, signed into law the Parental Involvement in K-12 Education Act ("Act"). House Bill 09-1057, now codified at C.R.S. Â§ 8-13.3-101 et seq., takes effect on August 5, 2009, unless a referendum petition is filed before this date. According to the General Assembly Bill Information Office, referendum petitions are rarely filed, meaning employers should plan accordingly to ensure they are prepared to comply with the Act's requirements this fall.
