Things are looking up for employees in the “mile-high” state, who will soon see a minimum wage increase effective January 1, 2018.

Colorado’s minimum wage law calls for increases of $1.00 every January 1, until the wage rate reaches $12.00 in 2020. Thereafter, annual adjustments will be based on the cost of living.

Details of the Minimum Wage Update

On January 1, 2018, Colorado’s minimum wage will increase to $10.20 per hour for all adult employees and emancipated minors. For employees who regularly receive tips, the minimum wage rate will increase to $7.18 per hour.

If an employee is covered by both state and federal minimum wage laws, the law that provides a higher minimum wage should be applied.
