Jeffrey Ruebel, practicing attorney and member of Colorado Defense Lawyers Association and the Legal Advisory Board of the Colorado Civil Justice League, testified that neither of these organizations have taken a position on the act, but question whether the act is needed in Colorado. Colorado has had law that covers much of the substance of this act since 1905, and much of the case law interpreting it covers much of the material included in the act. The legislature has amended portions of the existing statutes to adapt and to balance the right-to-work with the needs of businesses and others to protect intellectual property. The uniform act would require repealing certain statutes and case law, such as in section 8-2-113, C.R.S. Such a repeal may spawn uncertainty and lead to litigation. There is much overlap between current law and the uniform act, and while there are some provisions in the act to consider for Colorado, there are some provisions to avoid.
