Protected the ability of small business owners choosing to self-insure for their employees health-care coverage. This will help employers continue to provide affordable health coverage solutions for their employees.

Prevented the legislature from passing a bill prohibiting the use of a credit report in making a hiring decision. In 2013 NFIB was able to amend the current law preventing an additional attempt at an outright ban.

Prevented the Legislature from creating new opportunities for employees to file false claims for wages owed, saving business owners $25,000 to $30,000 in defending themselves against such charges.

Passed legislation that clarifies an employer is not liable when a lessee, sublessee, contractor, or subcontractor, or their employee, is injured while not on the employer's premises, saving business owners millions of dollars in claims and potential lawsuits.
