Colorado Equal Pay Act compliance made easy with RoleMapper
From January 1, 2021, Colorado's Equal Pay for Equal Work Act (SB19-085) prohibits all employers from discriminating because of sex (including gender identity) — alone or with another protected status — by paying less for substantially similar work in terms of skill, effort and responsibility.
In summary, the act prohibits an employer from:
Seeking the wage rate history of a prospective employee or requiring disclosure of wage rate as a condition of employment;
Relying on a prior wage rate to determine a wage rate;
Discriminating or retaliating against a prospective employee for failing to disclose the employee's wage rate history;
Discharging or retaliating against an employee for actions by an employee asserting the rights established by the act against an employer; or
Discharging, disciplining, discriminating against, or otherwise interfering with an employee for inquiring about, disclosing, or discussing the employee's wage rate.
Non-compliance can lead to fines of between $500 and $10,000 per violation.
