HB18-1303 - Youth Sports Coach Exempt Employment Security Act

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning exemption of nonprofit youth sports organization coaches from the "Colorado Employment Security Act".

The bill exempts from the definition of 'employment' under the 'Colorado Employment Security Act' (act) nonprofit youth sports organization coaches if there is a written agreement between the coach and the organization that meets certain requirements, including a statement that the coach is an independent contractor. The organization may not control the means or methods by which the coach provides coaching services, nor may the organization terminate the coach except for breach of contract or noncompliance with the requirements of the youth sports governing body or industry standards. If the bill's requirements are satisfied, then the coach will be considered an independent contractor for purposes of the act.

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