THE UNEMPLOYMENT PROCESS IN COLORADO
Before the Colorado Unemployment Compensation Hearing
If you have any evidence or documents you would like to use, you must provide copies to all interested parties listed in your hearing packet before the date of the hearing. Additionally, be sure to thoroughly read the hearing packet.
Colorado Unemployment Compensation Hearing Process
Hearings begin at the same time stated on the Colorado Unemployment Compensation Notice of Hearing and typically last about an hour. If you are participating in person, arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you have enough time to check in for the hearing. If you are participating by telephone, call at the time indicated on the Notice of Hearing.
Review the information in the Colorado Unemployment Compensation hearing packet before the hearing and be sure to have it with you for the hearing. If you have witnesses, bring them with you or provide their names and telephone numbers to the hearing officer.
The Colorado Unemployment Compensation hearing officer will explain the hearing process and the issues to be discussed in the hearing. The hearing officer will also question the parties and witnesses. You may question the other parties and they may question you. After all testimony is taken, the hearing officer will conclude the hearing.More>

According to data released Wednesday by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, the area's unemployment rate fell in August to 8.3 percent from 8.4 percent in June and July, but the decline resulted from nearly 500 area residents leaving the job market rather than finding jobs. To be considered part of the job market, people must either be employed or looking for work. The area's jobless rate was 9.2 percent a year ago.
Area payrolls - indicating the number of jobs added - rose in August by slightly less than 1 percent, compared with a year earlier - the first time payrolls have grown that slowly since December. Much of the slowdown resulted from job losses in the real estate, construction, retailing and tourism industries, which offset growth in education and health care.
The unemployment rate is calculated from the results of a survey of residents, while payroll data comes from a survey of employers. Both sets of data are compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which remained closed Wednesday as part of the federal government shutdown. The state labor department posted the data Wednesday on its website.
Tom Binnings, a senior partner of Summit Economics LLC, a local economic research and consulting firm, said the local economy benefitted earlier this year from the arrival of an aviation unit at Fort Carson and strong housing construction. But the gains from the aviation unit already have played out, and construction is starting to slow as mortgage rates rise. The local tourism and retail industries also took a hit from flooding that hit western El Paso and eastern Teller counties in August, which caused repeated closures of U.S. Highway 24 near Manitou Springs, he said.
"We are probably seeing the impact of the flooding as well as sequestration (automatic federal budget cuts) in the August numbers," Binnings said. "I was pleasantly surprised with the strength of the local economy during the first half of the year, but the strength during the second half will depend on how long the federal government stays shut down, how deep the next round of cuts will be in sequestration and how high mortgage rates go."
Unemployment rates fell in every other metropolitan area of the state except for Pueblo, which remained unchanged at 9.7 percent. Boulder had the lowest jobless rate among the seven metro areas at 5.2 percent.
The state's unemployment rate was 7 percent in August, down from 7.1 percent in July. The U.S. unemployment rate fell in August to 7.3 percent from 7.4 percent in July.
Colorado unemployment benefits provide temporary compensation to those workers meeting the eligibility requirements of Colorado law. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and each other state's unemployment office administers its own unemployment insurance program within Federal guidelines.
The value of unemployment benefits in Colorado differs from that of other states because each state unemployment office applies its own formulas and limits when calculating the level of unemployment compensation.
The duration of unemployment benefits in Colorado may also differ from that of other states.
