The Equal Pay for Equal Work Act (C.R.S. § 8-5-101 et seq.) was signed into law by Colorado Governor Polis on May 22, 2019. Effective January 1, 2021, this act amends Colorado law and provides new wage discrimination and employer provisions that differ from federal law and other state equal pay laws. CU Boulder, along with each campus and system office of the University of Colorado, is evaluating the requirements of the new law and reviewing existing policies and pay practices for alignment. CU Boulder executive leadership, human resources, and legal counsel are leading this effort.
