Colorado Workers' Compensation Act
The Workers' Compensation Act is a workers compensation law poster by the Colorado Department Of Labor and Employment. This is an optional poster, so while it is recommended that you post this if it is relevant to your employees, you are not required to by the Department Of Labor and Employment.
This poster, written in Spanish, is optional to post and describes entitlements employees have if they sustain injury in the workplace.
