Passed at the very end of the session, HB15-1392 shifts the state to a twice-a-month pay cycle from its current once-a-month pay cycle.
The Colorado WINS Executive Board supported this concept for two reasons.
- First, employees should be paid at least twice monthly. Forcing middle-class families to wait an entire month between paychecks is anachronistic and creates a hardship for many working families.
- Second, for those who earn overtime this will ensure that you receive that pay in a much more timely fashion.
The bill will not take effect until July 2017 and we will work closely with DPA to make sure the implementation and transition is as simple and smooth as possible.
