HB23-1030: Prohibit Direct-hire Fee Health-care Staff Agency

Governor Polis signed the “Agency Bill” into law on May 1st, 2023.  It is effective immediately.

The Bill prohibits requiring compensation to a health-care staffing agency if a contracted health-care facility hires the health-care staffing agency’s employee as a permanent employee of the health-care facility.  Read the full Bill Text at HB23-1030.

It is time to revise your Agency Agreements to remove any such compensation clauses.
