Holiday, Severance, and Sick Pay

Holiday Pay

Colorado wage law does not require nor prohibit any paid holidays, and does not require nor prohibit any extra pay for working on holidays. When an employee is paid for a non-work holiday, the holiday hours do not count towards overtime unless actual work was performed on the holiday.

Severance Pay

Colorado wage law does not require nor prohibit severance pay. Severance pay is a benefit offered by employers at their own discretion. Severance pay is not wages or compensation for the purposes of the Colorado Wage Act.
