Employment Law

There are extensive laws concerning employment in this country and this state. On the federal level, the Department of Labor enforces 180 laws — a good chunk of which concern the rights of employees. The state of Colorado only adds to that amount. As a Colorado worker, this means you have a long list of rights and protections in place to benefit you.

If you are an employer, it is crucial for you to be familiar with these laws. By knowing them, you can provide your employees with all the necessary information about the laws protecting them. Likewise, you can avoid violating them at any point in time, thereby protecting your business from potential legal disputes and lawsuits.

Employment law can be easy to navigate if you have the right information. If you’re an employee, taking some time to learn about your rights can help you to recognize when they’ve been violated and act immediately. If you’re an employer, knowing the rights of your employees ensures that you can effectively uphold them.
