Employees Must Be Paid On Time

For workers who depend on a paycheck, it’s essential that they receive that paycheck in a timely manner. In Colorado, there are legal requirements for private employers outlining the required timing of employee’s paychecks. When employees don’t receive timely payments, they may struggle financially. But employers who don’t pay their workers in a timely manner could also face legal trouble.

Timing Is Important

Colorado employees depend on their paychecks to make ends meet. It doesn’t matter if employers pay their employees in full, but weeks or months too late — the delay still qualifies as a violation under the Colorado Wage Act.

What Are The Requirements?

According to the Colorado Wage Act, pay periods can be no longer than 30 days, and employees must be paid no more than 10 days after the 30-day pay period ends. Pay stubs must outline certain information, including the pay period, the payment amount and any deductions made from the paycheck. These are not just rough guidelines, but legal requirements. Employers who fail to abide by these requirements can face steep fines.
