WAGE AND PAY DISPUTES
The Colorado Wage Act (C.R.S. 8-4- 101 et seq.) requires Colorado employers to pay employees their earned wages in a timely manner. The Wage Act is commonly referred to as the Colorado Wage Law, the Colorado Wage Claim Act, or the Colorado Wage Protection Act. The law addresses deductions from wages, vacation, commissions, bonuses, final pay, pay periods and paydays, and pay statements.
Our firm has a wealth of experience representing both employers and employees in wage and pay dispute matters. For over ten years, Lee has provided seminars to employers, employees, and organizations on how to navigate the intricacies of the Colorado Wage Act. We represent employees and employers in matters that include unpaid wages, back pay, overtime, commissions, unlawful deductions from wages, and time off/leave/break time.
Both Colorado and Federal law (under the Fair Labor Standards Act) protect workers by requiring a minimum wage and overtime (pay of time-and-a-half for work over 40 hours per week).
