House Bill 1041 seeks to prevent the doxxing of health care workers and other employees.
DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis signed nearly a dozen bills Thursday, including two that will provide privacy protections for health care workers and will add the word “consent” to Colorado’s sexual assault law.
House Bill 1041 seeks to prevent the doxxing of health care workers and other employees — such as code enforcement officers, child representatives and animal control officers — by adding them to the list of people who can request to have their personal information removed from government websites after they receive threats to their safety.
