HB17-1175 - Domestic Violence Awareness Barbers Cosmetologists

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning domestic violence awareness training under the 'Barber and Cosmetologist Act'.

The bill requires barbers, hairstylists, cosmetologists, estheticians, and nail technicians, as part of the requirement to renew their professional licenses, to take a one-time training course for one hour on domestic violence and sexual assault awareness. The bill does not impose a mandatory reporting requirement on these professionals and specifically grants them immunity from civil and criminal liability for reporting or failing to report potential domestic violence or sexual assault. The director of the division of professions and occupations in the department of regulatory agencies, in consultation with one or more statewide organization with a primary purpose of serving victims of domestic violence or sexual assault, shall promulgate rules establishing standards for the training course.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
