DENVER (KDVR) — A measure to ban hair discrimination by employers has passed the Colorado House of Representatives.
The CROWN Act is a nationwide movement to stop employers from telling employees their natural hair isn’t appropriate for the workplace.
The bill does not apply to hair color but rather to styles.
“Expressing your identity and culture through hairstyle is empowering, and Coloradans should never have to fear reprisal in the workplace for doing so,” said Rep. Leslie Herod (D-Denver).
The measure now moves to the Colorado Senate for consideration.
