The minimum direct cash wage for tipped employees will increase to $9.30 per hour on January 1, 2021. If a tipped employee's cash wages and tips fail to meet or exceed $12.32 per hour, employers must make up the difference.
Effective January 1, 2021, Colorado employers must pay all non-exempt employees at least $12.32 per hour. Colorado employers must also post an updated Colorado Overtime and Minimum Pay Standards notice. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
