Effective January 1, 2024, under the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act (EPEWA), employers must make reasonable efforts to notify all employees of each job opportunity, which is a job vacancy that the employer is accepting applications for and externally posting. This notification should happen on the same day for all employees, prior to the employer’s selection decision, and must include:
- Pay or pay range;
- Benefits description;
- Other applicable compensation; and
- When the application date ends.
Note: Employers wholly out of state, with fewer than 15 employees in Colorado who are all remote, are only required to notify about remote job opportunities through July 1, 2029.
Within 30 days of selecting a candidate, employers must provide their name, job title (former title if already an employee and new title otherwise), and how other employees can apply for a similar job in the future. For positions with career progression, employers must disclose the progression, pay, benefits, whether it’s a full- or part-time position, job duties, and access to further advancement. However, employers can’t identify a candidate in a way that violates their legal and privacy rights or puts them at risk.
