HB17-1269 - Repeal Prohibition Of Wage Sharing Information

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the repeal of the prohibition of an action against an employee for sharing wage information.

Current law states that it is a discriminatory and unfair labor practice for an employer to discharge, discipline, discriminate against, coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any employee or other person because the employee inquired about, disclosed, compared, or otherwise discussed the employee's wages, unless otherwise permitted by federal law. Federal law exempts certain limited classes of employers from labor laws. The bill strikes the reference to that exemption and extends the current law to those classes of employers, thereby providing wage transparency protections to all employees.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
