Colorado State Employees
Colorado state employees are entitled to unique employment protections. Tava Employment Law advises state employees on their employment rights and represents state employees before the Colorado State Personnel Board and Colorado Civil Rights Division.
Once past the initial probationary period, state employees are entitled to protections under the State Personnel Board Rules and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act. These protections include:
- The right to notice and an investigatory process prior to discipline or termination;
- The right to appeal discipline or termination;
- The right to work in a workplace free of discrimination and retaliation; and
- The right to use protected family, medical, and sick leave.
State personnel actions are governed by rules that set extremely short deadlines for appeal and other filings, so please contact the firm immediately if you are facing an adverse employment action as a state employee.
Every case is different. Please reach out to us to us if you are a Colorado state employee facing an employment problem so we can discuss your next steps.
