Senator Ulibarri presented House Bill 16-1001 to the committee. This bill requires the Department of Personnel and Administration (DPA) to develop and make available on its website a form that allows individual bidders to self-certify that:



the business does not pay any of its employees at wage rates less than the rates paid to other employees on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, or national origin (stated criteria) for substantially equal work, except in certain circumstances such as to reflect seniority, merit, or production and quality goals;

employees of the business cannot be disciplined for sharing information regarding employee compensation with coworkers;

the business publishes the salary range for available positions;

the business does not restrict employees with stated criteria to certain job classifications and makes retention and promotion decisions without respect to these criteria;

wages and benefit disparities are corrected when identified; and

wages and benefits are periodically evaluated to ensure compliance with equal pay standards and laws, including how often such evaluation occurs.
