Protecting Workers in Colorado

Your job is your livelihood, allowing you to provide for your family, keep a roof over your head, and pay your bills. For many, having a good job gives them a purpose and an identity, so when there are problems at work, they can easily invade a person’s home life as well.

While many employers take responsibility to ensure their employees are treated fairly and ethically, there are others who take advantage of their workers to avoid fulfilling their financial responsibilities—or simply because they believe they can get away with it.

If you have been mistreated at work or need the assistance of an employment law expert, our experienced Denver employment law attorneys at Colorado Employee Advocates are ready to help you uphold what is right by effectively using the law.

Whether you have been discriminated against due to your age, sexually harassed, or denied pay you rightfully earned, we are ready to fight for you.

We want to hear your story! Schedule your initial consultation by calling (303) 416-7004 or by contacting our experienced employment lawyers online.

What Does an Employment Lawyer Do?

An experienced employment law attorney can help with a wide range of claims including:

Many well-meaning employees will seek help from an HR department or supervisor to resolve work problems, only to find out that their statements were used to protect the best interests of the business.

We advise clients to seek counsel from a lawyer before bringing their claim to a company representative in order to gain a third-party perspective of their legal situation, understand their legal claims, and appreciate how to best protect their employment and unique situation.

What Rights Do Colorado Workers Have?

Employees have numerous laws protecting them on both the state and federal levels. While these aren’t always entirely inclusive or comprehensive, for the most part, workers who are treated unfairly or wrongly terminated can rightfully fight back against negligent employers under the law.

Is Colorado an At Will State?

Yes, Colorado follows the legal doctrine of "employment-at-will." Most Americans are employed “at will,” meaning they can legally be let go without justification, workers can still take legal action under certain circumstances—and should to get the justice they deserve.

Among the most important protections for Colorado employees are:

  • The right not to be fired or discriminated against due to taking FMLA leave.
  • The right not to be retaliated against for opposing illegal practices (i.e., whistleblowing) by your employer.
  • The right not to be subjected to harassment, such as sexual harassment.
  • The right to be paid proper overtime.
  • The right to be treated fairly regardless of age, disability, gender, national origin, pregnancy, race, and/or religion.
