Colorado Anti-Discrimination
The Colorado Civil Rights Division has updated their Anti-Discrimination Notice. "Pregnancy" is listed as a new protected class under the Employment Discrimination section of the notice. Aubrey Elenis is the new Colorado Civil Rights Division Director and the new revision date for the notice is 8/5/2016.
Effective Date: August, 2016

Pregnancy Accommodations
The Colorado Civil Rights Division has released a new Pregnancy Accommodations notice. According to the Colorado Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, it is considered a discriminatory or unfair employment practice if an employer fails to provide reasonable accommodations to an applicant or employee who is pregnant, physically recovering from childbirth, or a related condition. The Act also prohibits an employer from taking adverse action against an employee who requests or uses a reasonable accommodation and from denying employment opportunities to an applicant or employee based on the need to make a reasonable accommodation. Additionally, the notice lists a scope of requirements for reasonable accommodations. Lastly, all employers must post a written notice in a conspicuous area of the workplace and must also provide this notice to new employees at the start of employment and to current employees within 120 days of the Act's August 10, 2016 effective date.
Effective Date: August, 2016
