Wage and Hour Disputes
The Colorado Wage Act and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act describe employers’ responsibilities to compensate their employees, along with other requirements for such things as breaks and uniforms. Disputes over wages owed to non-exempt employees might relate to overtime, break time, comp time, tips, piece work, commissions, pay deductions, or final paychecks.
Some employers offer benefits that are not regulated by state or federal law. An employer’s uneven or discriminatory practices might lead to disputes over vacation time, bereavement leave, sick leave, or severance pay.
