State lawmakers are moving to make it harder for workers to claim retaliation if they are fired in the wake of claiming they were denied wages or legally entitled time off.

On a 35-25 party-line vote, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives decided Wednesday to ask voters to eliminate a provision in the voter-approved law, which spells out that if an employer takes action against a worker within 90 days of a complaint, it is presumed that the action is illegal retaliation. That can be overcome only if a company provides “clear and convincing evidence” that the action against the worker “was taken for other permissible reasons.”
