Colorado ADA: What you need to know

The Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act prohibits employment practices that discriminate or harass on the basis of disability (CO Rev. Stat. Sec. 24-34-401 et seq.). Under the Act, it is not a discriminatory or an unfair employment practice for an employer to discriminate if there is no reasonable accommodation that the employer can make with regard to an individual's disability, the disability actually disqualifies the person from the job, and the disability has a significant impact on the job (CO Rev. Stat. Sec. 24-34-402). The Act covers all employers, regardless of size. Separate laws also prohibit disability discrimination by state agencies and by employers supported in whole or in part by public funds.
