Colorado Notice of Paydays and Anti-Discrimination Posters

Colorado’s economy is booming thanks to low unemployment and a lot of opportunities in industries as varied as oil and gas exploration/drilling and high-tech centers such as Denver and Boulder. Colorado, being a state that straddles the Rock Mountains is rightfully thought of as a Western state and it has the independence and freedom loving nature to back that up. Over the years, the Colorado Department of labor and Employment has issued a number of mandatory postings as per the various laws passed that govern labor and employment in the state.

One such poster mandated by Colorado Revised Statutes is the Notice of Paydays poster. As per section 107:

Every Employer shall post and keep posted conspicuously at the place of work if practicable…a notice specifying the regular paydays and the time and place of payment.

Pay periods cannot, by law last longer than a calendar month or 30 days whichever is longer and the payment must occur no later than 10 days from the close of each pay period.


Another such poster mandated in the State of Colorado deals with the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Laws and is issued by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies.  The poster is printed in both English and Spanish and covers Housing, Employment, and Public Accommodation. In employment:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Creed
  • National Origin
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Marriage to a co-worker
  • others

Also, noted by the poster is Rule 20.23 which covers photographs of Applicants for Employment and states that “No employer, employment agency, or labor organization shall suggest or require that applicants submit their photographs prior to their employment or placement, unless the requirement is based upon a Bona Fide Occupational Qualification (BFOQ).”
