Oppose Increased Employer Mandates

State policymakers must support employers as they invest in the Commonwealth’s workforce. To enhance workforce flexibility, the Kentucky Chamber opposes state and local wage mandates, safety regulations and additional standards that exceed federal requirements. When state or local governments enact regulations and mandates beyond what are necessary to provide proven, uniform protections, the added cost of doing business decreases Kentucky’s overall competitiveness, particularly with our border and peer states. State government should closely scrutinize regulations already on the books to ensure effectiveness and provide consistent enforcement so businesses can operate in a predictable climate.
