This unit helps the State manage its workforce and defends the State and its employees in employment and personnel disputes. The attorneys and staff represent all agencies in personnel hearings and matters before the State Personnel Board. They provide advice and training to state agencies and employees regarding personnel matters. This unit also provides legal advice to the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) in conjunction with CCRD’s investigations of charges of employment, housing, and public accommodations discrimination, and prosecutes those cases which have been noticed for hearing by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The Unit also defends the Subsequent Injury and Major Medical Insurance Funds, which are part of the Special Funds Unit of the Division of Workers’ Compensation within the Department of Labor and Employment.
