Gearing up for Colorado’s New Pay Equity Law

Todd Fredrickson, Fisher Phillips

Last year, Colorado's state legislature passed the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, which overlays the 57-year-old federal Equal Pay Act, and goes into effect January 1.

Nuances to the Colorado law could put your dealership at risk of a pay audit — or worse, a lawsuit that could easily run you into the mid-six figures, if you don't have all your 'ducks in a row.'

Join us as Fisher Phillips Partner Todd Fredrickson leads the timely and important webinar: Gearing up for Colorado's New Pay Equity Law.

He'll discuss the federal and new state laws and take a deeper dive into the additional requirements of the Colorado law, along with the practical steps you can take now.

Designed for dealer principals, general managers, HR managers, business managers and controllers, Todd will walk you through preparing or updating compensation plans and job descriptions to comply with federal and state regulations.

And if you ARE audited, he'll outline what you can expect from the U.S. and Colorado Departments of Labor.

 

You'll learn

  • How to modify hiring policies and practices too accommodate the new Colorado law

  • Steps for performing a preventive self-audit, or working with HR professionals or legal counsel to arm you with sufficient information to perform audits on your behalf

  • How to compare positions within your organization to determine similarities for equal pay purposes, along with legitimate differences in pay, based on exceptions under federal and state law
