FILE PHOTO - Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signs a bill to give county workers collective bargaining rights on May 27th.  Polis just signed into law SB 97 ensuring protections for workplace whistleblowers.

Gov. Jared Polis signed several more bills into law Tuesday, including a measure that offers whistleblower protections to employees who report health or safety issues in the workplace.

The new law was prompted, in part, from Amazon employees who alleged they were retaliated against when they reported how the company was reacting to the pandemic.
