Governor Polis issues five Executive Orders extending State of Emergency

On Saturday, June 20, 2020, Governor Polis issued Executive Orders D108, D109, D110, D111 and D112 to modify and extend certain requirements defining the “Safer at Home” phase of re-opening Colorado following the COVID-19 pandemic will look like.

To preface, we have heard rumors of a drafting process for an Executive Order that would transfer Colorado to “Protect Your Neighbors” (i.e. Phase 3) of reopening. However, at this time, we do not have an idea of when such a further loosening of the restrictions may occur.

Thursday!

There’s a new law that goes into effect January 1, 2021. Sure it seems like a long way off, but because there are so many pieces involved, it’s better to prepare now before waiting until later in the year.

Join us from 8:30 – 10 Thursday morning for the webinar:
Pay Equity in 2020: What you need to know

Last year, the Colorado State Legislature passed the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, which changes how you post available jobs, what information must be disclosed and what is forbidden. This law also gives Colorado employees the right to sue employers for allegations of pay discrimination, which means hefty fines and back pay for up to three years.

If you’re an employer in the state of Colorado, you need to prepare now for the new law.

CADA clarifies dealership capacity limitation differences between CDPHE public health order and MVDB emergency rule

When Colorado transitioned to Safer at Home and permitted businesses to re-open in a limited capacity, Governor Polis looked to his Department of Public Health (CDPHE) to implement new standards to balance safety and economy.  The product of this advice was Public Health Order (PHO) 20-28.  

This enforceable regulation stated that all non-critical retail establishments must limit staffing to 50 percent capacity of their building upon re-opening. This regulation could be enforced by county public health officers or any agency with law enforcement jurisdiction over the establishment.

Almost immediately, the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board convened to amend emergency rule 44-20-102(22), which governed the auto industry specifically. The amended rule peeled back an existing regulation and now only requires that a licensee (dealer) comply with state PHO and any local orders that may exist.

This rule, too, is enforceable, but jurisdiction generally lies with investigators from the Auto Industry Division.

The same day the Dealer Board approved 44-20-102(22), the Auto Industry Division distributed a supplemental document that outlined Best Practices for re-opening.  The third bullet point on this document advised dealers that they should not permit staffing in excess of 50 percent of their pre-COVID 19 levels.
