There's a new law in effect for Colorado that requires employers to include a salary range when posting job opportunities within the state. The measure is meant to increase transparency and prevent gender-based pay discrimination, but there appears to be some unintended consequences.

For one, some companies are flat out not including salary requirements, in violation of the law. Offenses carry fines from $500-$10,000. Right now, the state is focused on educating employers of the requirements.

Secondly, some companies are explicitly excluding Colorado remote workers from their job pool, as we've previously reported.

News5 would like to know your thoughts on the new requirements for employers and any potential impact on you.
