Webinar: What Companies Need to Know: Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act.

About this Event

Employers will be impacted by Colorado’s new Equal Pay for Equal Work Act. It brings new significant obligations for Colorado employers. In an effort to help close the “pay gap,” companies will soon be required to include pay rate and benefits information in job postings, provide employees with notice of promotional opportunities, and prohibit requests for applicants prior compensation information. Moreover, the Act creates a new private right of action that goes well beyond federal law, making it much easier for employees to bring successful claims of pay discrimination.

While the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act does not go into effect until January 1, 2021, employers need to start planning now for all the new requirements. In this special webinar, Jackson Lewis P.C. attorneys will walk through the new legal obligations and discuss provide best practice tips and steps you can take now to help protect your company from increased scrutiny under the Act.

This webinar will provide 1 SHRM Professional Development Credit.
