Colorado Hair Discrimination Laws in Effect

What happened?
The Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair Act of 2020 (CROWN) will be in effect for Colorado employers as of August 5, 2020.

What are the details?
CROWN makes it illegal to discriminate against people for their hair styles or protective hairstyles, specifically for ones that are historically associated with races. Examples of these hairstyles include braids, locks, twists, tight coils or curls, cornrows, Bantu knots, afros, and headwraps.

The full CROWN may be read here.

If they have not yet done so, employers should update their anti-discrimination policies.
