 Citywide Minimum Wage Overview

Active Enforcement

Denver Labor Begins Active Wage Enforcement in 2022

Beginning in 2022, Denver Labor will use data and thoughtful analysis to improve the reach of our education and enforcement work within industries where workers are at highest risk of receiving less than the wages required according to law. Using this information, Denver Labor may begin more proactive wage investigations without receiving a complaint of potential underpayment.

Active wage enforcement will include strategic onsite visits to speak with at-risk workers. 

City ordinance lists criteria that must be met to trigger a proactive investigation including:

  • Prior violations by an owner;
  • A pattern of noncompliance within an industry;
  • Credible information from a state or federal agency;
  • Data indicating an employer is likely to be in violation of the minimum wage.

For questions about how our active enforcement program will impact your business, contact Denver Labor.
