My concern is for the smaller companies - in this case for the smaller utilities. While some of these regulations might be necessary for larger corporations, smaller companies are finding it harder and harder to keep up with all the rules and regs. It might make sense to form a small group of HR members here in Colorado to hop on a call to share insights on how they plan to tackle this. Perhaps a mini PowerSession discussion. If you would be interested, ping me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see what I can pull together in the next few months.
Colorado Employers - What steps are you taking to prepare for Colorado's Equal Pay Act going into effect January 1, 2021?
- Dec 23, 2020 5:47 pm GMT
Colorado's Equal Pay Act goes into effect on January 1, 2021. Provisions in the legislation limit allowed reasons for pay disparity, require all employers to include pay and benefits information in job ads, bans asking about past pay and using past pay as a basis for pay, inform existing employees of promotional opportunities, prohibits retaliation for invoking the law, and provides remedies for aggrieved employees.
Are you ready for this? What steps did you take to get ready? What have you found to be the most challenging aspects of doing so?
