The State of Colorado is implementing two State Orders that do NOT impact the University of Colorado Boulder.

Colorado Overtime and Minimum Pay Standards Order

The Colorado Overtime and Minimum Pay Standards Order (currently COMPS Order #36 and proposed COMPS Order #37) overhauls wage and pay regulations, including overtime, meal and rest breaks, overtime exemption standards, and other related areas for many Colorado employers.  However, these COMPS Orders do NOT impact CU.  There are NO changes to how CU manages overtime, meal or rest breaks.  CU continues to follow the federal Fair Labor Standards Act for overtime requirements and eligibility.

Campus departments should NOT post any COMPS Order labor posters as CU is not impacted by these Orders.

Executive Order On Mandatory Furloughs

On Tuesday, Sept. 22 the State of Colorado announced an Executive Order from the Governor mandating furlough days for state employees making more than $50,000 per year. Higher education is exempt from these state mandated furloughs.

CU Boulder is currently working with CU System and the other campuses to determine if classified employee furloughs will be implemented. We will follow up when we have more information.
