August 2022: Reminder: Colorado Expands Notice Requirement for Unemployment Benefits Upon Termination

16 Aug


In a previous communication, we notified you that on May 25, 2022, Governor Polis signed Senate Bill 234 (SB 234) into law, which expands the required notice for unemployment benefits to include specific provisions.

Effective immediately, Employers must provide each employee, in writing, information on the availability of unemployment compensation benefits at the time of separation from employment. The written information must also include:

  • Employer’s name and address;
  • Employee’s name and address;
  • Employee’s ID number or the last four digits of their Social Security number;
  • Employee’s first and last dates worked, year-to-date earnings, and wages for the last week worked; and
  • Reason for separation.

The notice requirements apply to voluntary and involuntary terminations, as the notice information must include the reason for separation.
