Changing the Rules: Testifying Before the Colorado Department of Labor

2014.11.04-Hood-Testifying-on-Wage-Order-31-B4-CDLE1.jpgTowards Justice Director of Litigation Alex Hood testified before the Colorado Department of Labor and Education on proposed Wage Order #31. Executive Director Nina DiSalvo followed, presenting Towards Justice’s comments on the proposed Wage Protection Act Rules. These regulations impact not only who is entitled to state minimum wage in Colorado, but also how victims of wage theft can seek redress through the new adjudicative process created by the Wage Protection Act. That process goes into effect in January 2015, and Towards Justice is working diligently to encourage effective and thoughtful implementation at the Colorado Department of Labor and Education.
