About Us

Unemployment insurance supports Colorado’s economy by providing temporary partial income to workers who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. Colorado employers pay into the fund to help workers during periods of joblessness. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment is here to help you understand our state’s unemployment insurance system, including:

  • Guidance on the classification of your workers.
  • How your rate was calculated and why you pay the amount you do.
  • Why it is important to respond to requests for information and how it can affect your rate.
  • Assistance in finding qualified workers for your job openings.
