TITLE: CONCERNING ADHERENCE TO THE EXEMPTIONS FROM OVERTIME RECOGNIZED BY THE FEDERAL “FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT OF 1938” IN DETERMINING REQUIREMENTS FOR OVERTIME IN COLORADO.
Summary of Assessment
The provisions of this bill would specify that, in determining conditions of employment including overtime, neither the director of the Division of Labor, Department of Labor and Employment, nor any wage board established by the director may eliminate, overrule, or otherwise change any of the exemptions from overtime specified in the federal “Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938”. The bill also would repeal minimum Wage Order Number 21 adopted by the executive director of the Department of Labor and Employment on August 7, 1997. The bill would become effective upon signature of the Governor, and would apply to wages and hours worked on or after the effective date.
The repeal of this wage order would not impact the Division of Labor, or any other agency of the state, or unit of local government. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
