State law prohibits sponsors or employers from discriminating against apprentices or applicants on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, national origin, or ancestry (CO Rev. Stat. Sec. 24-34-402). An employer or sponsor may deny admission to an apprenticeship program if no reasonable accommodation can be made for a person with a disability, the disability actually disqualifies the applicant from the program, and the disability has a significant impact on participation in the program.
