Denver employers need to meet new requirements for job listing and internal promotions starting Jan 1, 2024.

Senate Bill 23-105, signed into law by Gov. Polis, amends the state’s Equal Pay for Equal Work Act and mandates new compliance regulations for all employers, including those with just one remote employee in the state. Provisions include:

  • Disclosure of the compensation and benefits to be offered when posting jobs.
  • Making reasonable efforts to announce job openings and promotion opportunities within the company on the same day to all employees.

So, if you’re considering adding a new position or promoting someone, you need to notify all of your employees about it before selecting a candidate or granting a promotion. This applies to Colorado employees regardless of where employees are located. However, employers are no longer required to provide notice for lockstep promotion opportunities as part of an established career development pathway.

Job postings must now include the range from hourly or salary compensation, a general description of the compensation and benefits for the job, and the date application windows will close.

Employers also have to notify their Colorado workers of all new hires and employee promotions selected through a competitive process within 30 days of their start date. Announcements need to include information about how employees can indicate their interest in similar opportunities in the future.
