Wage and Hour Labor Law

Colorado Labor Law and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are clear: employees should be paid for the hours worked. Employers often ignore the law and intimidate or confuse their employees to avoid complying. Colorado law and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) covers many requirements, including such things as strict rules about:

  • Failure to pay overtime for all hours worked in excess of eight hours per day, or all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per work week
  • Failure to record time you are required to be at work before or after the shift
  • Failure to compensate for meal breaks when the employee is actually at work and not on a break from work
  • Allocating the hours worked for different departments, even if it is with the same employer to avoid paying overtime
  • Failure to pay for on-call time
  • Failure to reimburse for employer mandated uniforms or equipment
