Colorado Government Contractors: What you need to know

Colorado law states that any public works project financed in whole or in part by funds of the state, counties, school districts, or municipalities must use Colorado labor for at least 80 percent of the work. “Colorado labor” means any person who is a resident of the state of Colorado at the time of the public works project, without discrimination as to race, color, creed, sex, age, or religion, except when sex or age is a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ).
