HB18-1033 - Employee Leave To Participate In Elections

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning the time in which employees are entitled to take leave to participate in elections.

Currently, an employee may take leave for a period of time to vote in an election on the day of the election. The bill allows an employee to take leave to vote, register to vote, obtain a ballot or replacement ballot, or obtain documents or identification necessary to vote or register. For a general, primary, or coordinated election, the bill allows an employee to take the leave one time on any day that polling locations are open. For all other elections, the bill allows the employee to take the leave one time on any day during the 8 days prior to and including the day of the election. An employer may deny a request for leave if the employee has 3 consecutive hours in which he or she is not scheduled to work during the hours the employee is entitled to take the leave.

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