In many instances, these laws offer overlapping protections, giving employees who have been discriminated against the option of whether to seek help at the state or federal level.

The Colorado Fair Employment Practices Act makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, sexual orientation, and physical or mental disability. Recently, the statute was amended to allow an employee to recover both economic, non-economic, and punitive damages from employers, including businesses with fewer than 15 employees, who are found liable for discriminating on the basis of a protected class mentioned above. The Colorado anti-discrimination statute covers employers of any size. Therefore, if your workplace has between 1 and 14 employees, you should file with the CCRD. The EEOC enforces federal law, which covers only employers with 15 or more employees or 20 in the case of age discrimination.
