Labor and Industry

Labor and Industry



We reaffirm our strong support for the "right-to-work" concept.  We oppose the repeal of legislation implementing the "right-to-work" in Kansas, and we vigorously oppose the repeal of Section 14(b) of the Taft-Hartley Act.

Unemployment Compensation


We support an update and increase in the threshold exemption for agriculture in the Unemployment Compensation Act.

Additionally, we support a periodic update of the agricultural exemption to reflect the inflation that has occurred over recent years.

Workers' Compensation


We continue to support exemption for agriculture from the industrially-oriented Workers’ Compensation Act.
