New Legislation Impacting Wage Claims

On May 29, 2014, Governor Hickenlooper signed into law, Senate Bill 14-005, which is also called the Wage Protection Act. This bill authorizes the Colorado Department of Labor ("CDLE") to develop an administrative process to handle wage claim cases. Wage claim cases consist of a variety of grievances including but not limited to: violations of minimum wage laws, failure to pay overtime wages, forcing workers to work off the clock, withholding a worker's final paycheck, withholding gratuity from tipped workers, failing to provide required paid breaks or unpaid lunch periods and complete non-payment for labor performed.
