Colorado’s Pay Equity Law: Is Your Company Prepared?

Recorded on November 12, 2020

On January 1, 2021, Colorado’s enhanced Equal Pay for Equal Work Act will take effect. The law prohibits discriminatory pay practices on the basis of gender, and applies to companies with employees in the state. This adds Colorado to the growing list of states with pay equity legislation that is stricter than federal law.

In this joint webcast, Sherman & Howard and Equity Methods will discuss the main legal requirements of the law, as well as key considerations in performing a pay equity audit. Tune in to learn about:

  • Highlights of the new legislation and their impact on hiring and compensation practices
  • The law’s safe harbor provision and how it can be used to limit potential liability
  • Best practices in performing a comprehensive pay equity audit that stands up to scrutiny
