    A Round Table Discussion about the new Adopted Rule: Colorado Overtime & Minimum Pay Standards (COMPS) Order #36

    In its annual wage order rulemaking, the Division of Labor Standards and Statistics in the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) has replaced Minimum Wage Order #35 with Colorado Overtime and Minimum Pay Standards Order (“COMPS Order”) #36. The COMPS Order, like the Division’s prior annually issued wage orders, is the source of critical Colorado wage rights and responsibilities beyond those provided by federal law: eligibility for the Colorado minimum wage; overtime pay for work past 40 hours per week and 12 hours per day; meal and rest breaks; and other employee and employer rights and responsibilities, such as what wage deductions are permissible, how hourly rates are calculated from non-hourly pay for overtime, and posting the Order’s provisions to employees for ease of access.

    So what does that mean for your organization? Join us on Wednesday, February 26, from 7:30 am – 9:00 am at KaPow Coffee and Comics for a round table discussion lead by employment attorney, Julia Paris from Employers Council. She will provide some basic guidance ion how to interpret the new COMPS Order as well as discuss what this might mean for you.

     This is one of the new style events that we are trying out this year for CSSHRM to reach out and be more accessible to our members. If you have any feedback, please feel free to share with any of the board members who will be in attendance.
