Meredith L. McDonald

Meredith McDonald will co-present a webinar on the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act this Thursday, August 13th, 2020, from 4:00-5:00 PM MDT. The CLE webinar, hosted by the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association (CDLA), will discuss the Act addressing the wage gap between Colorado male and female employees.

This webinar will cover the history of equal pay legislation in Colorado, and the requirements of the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, effective January 1, 2021, such as prohibiting employers from discriminating in the amount or rate of employees’ wages based on an employee’s sex; precluding employers from enquiring about or relying upon an employee’s prior wages in establishing wage rates; and creating transparency measures, enforceable by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, to provide employees with information about promotional opportunities and wages.
