HB19-1210 allows up to 10% of Colorado’s local jurisdictions to enact local minimum wage rates for individuals performing work while physically within the locality’s jurisdiction, which rates cannot increase by more than$1.75 or 15% annually, whichever is higher. Also, adjoining communities may join together to implement regional minimum wage rages. County minimum wages will only be applicable to the unincorporated areas of the county. Employee time spent traveling through a jurisdiction, or for stopping to refuel or for an employee’s personal meal or errands, is not subject to local minimum wage rates.
