Brownstein Podcast Series, December 10, 2019

Starting in 2020, Colorado’s employers will face a new landscape regarding how to pay their hourly and salaried employees. For example, on Jan. 1, Denver will become the first Colorado city to raise its local minimum wage independent from the state’s minimum. But that’s not the only big change ahead for the state’s wage standards. Tune in as Shareholders Sarah Mercer and Martine Wells along with Associate Craig Finger discuss what will be increasingly stark contrasts between the federal and Colorado wage requirements, how cities are expected to respond to some of these changes and, most importantly, why the proposed replacement to the Colorado Minimum Wage Order will mean big changes for Colorado’s employers.
