Agricultural Labor Rights and Responsibilities

On June 25, 2021, Senate Bill 21-087 (“SB87”), on agricultural labor rights and responsibilities, was signed into law by Governor Jared Polis. SB87 took effect as law immediately upon being signed, with provisions taking effect with varied dates, and with the CDLE Division of Labor Standards and Statistics tasked with adopting and publishing rules to implement and enforce SB87. After an eight months of public outreach, stakeholder engagement, and rulemaking processes, the Division adopted all rules by January 31, 2022, and then published guidance on SB87 and those rules by February 28, 2022:

  • on the Division rules page, for rules related to SB87, see
    • Colorado Overtime and Minimum Pay Standards Order (“COMPS Order”) #38, 7 CCR 1103-1 (wage-and-hour and related rules),
    • the Agricultural Labor Conditions Rules, 7 CCR 1103-15 (heat protection, service provider access, and related rules),
    • the Colorado Whistleblower, Anti-Retaliation, Non-Interference, and Notice-Giving Rules (“Colorado WARNING Rules”), 7 CCR 1103-11 (anti-retaliation, notices of rights, and related rules), and
    • from the Division’s rulemaking process, all written comments received from the public,
  • on the Division published guidance page, for rules related to SB87, see 
    • INFO #12, a one-page summary of agricultural labor rights and responsibilities, and
