Did you know that there is currently NO protection for Utah workers who experience discrimination or harassment in their workplace if they work for businesses with under 15 employees? HB 283: Workplace Protections Amendments by Rep. Becky Edwards (R-N.Salt Lake) would change that. Equalizing protections for all workers in businesses big and small is good policy that has been shown to reduce cases of discrimination in other states and reflects Utah values by broadening protections to everyone.
This important bill is headed to the House Business and Labor Committee, likely on Thursday morning at 8:00a, and needs your help!
All Utahns deserve to work in a safe environment free from harassment and discrimination.
