Employment Discrimination

Colorado Law prohibits discrimination in employment based on certain protected classes (characteristics). Examples of prohibited discriminatory practices include: failure to hire or promote; harassment; unequal compensation; terms and conditions of employment; termination; constructive discharge; aiding and abetting; retaliation; and other practices.

Colorado law prohibits discrimination in employment based on actual or perceived sexual orientation. By legal definition, sexual orientation means heterosexuality, homosexuality (lesbian or gay), bisexuality, and transgender status. Transgender status means a gender indentity or gender expression that differs from societal expectations based on gender assigned at birth.

If your complaint concerns discrimination in employment, and you wish to visit personally with an Investigator, you may stop by the Colorado Civil Rights Division's Main office (1560 Broadway, Suite 1050, Denver) for a meeting with an Investigator on a Tuesday or Thursday that is not a State Holiday, between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.  If you wish to make an appointment, as opposed to stopping by the office without an appointment, you may do so for Tuesdays or Thursdays for 8:30 a.m. (a limited number of appointments are available).  If you wish to make an appointment, call 303-894-2997 and you may do so.
