Beginning in January, the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act will go into effect in Colorado. With that will come new regulations that have a direct impact on how employers in the state hire and pay their workers. The bill prohibits employers in the state from discriminating on the basis of sex. It's a state mandate that companies offer equal pay for equal work, but there's a little more to it than that.
Now, the question for businesses is, what do you need to know, and what can you do now to make sure you're prepared for the new regulations?
The panel discussion topics include:
- Details on the new bill and how it will affect businesses and hiring practices
- Steps employers need to take now to prepare
- How the current economic disruption will interact with the new law's implementation
