The Colorado Division of Labor has released the 2014 Colorado Minimum Wage Order 30 Posting after adopting Minimum Wage Order Number 30 to reflect the new state minimum wage of $8.00 per hour effective January 1, 2014. Colorado adjusts its minimum wage annually for inflation.
Minimum Wage Order Number 30 regulates wages and hours for work performed within the following industries:
- Retail and Service
- Food and Beverage
- Commercial Support Service
- Health and Medical
If an employee is covered by federal and Colorado state minimum wage laws, then the employer must pay the higher minimum wage. The current Federal minimum wage is lower than the Colorado state minimum wage; therefore, covered employers in Colorado must pay the new state rate of $8.00 beginning January 1, 2014.
About the Posting
Every employer subject to this wage order must display a wage order poster in an area frequented by employees where it may be easily read during the work day.
The Colorado Minimum Wage Order 30 Poster is included on the GovDocs Colorado State-on-One poster with other required postings for Colorado employees, including:
- Unemployment Insurance
- Workers’ Compensation
- State of Colorado – Anti–Discrimination
- Notice of Injury
- Pay Day Notice
