Disability Hiring Preference Pilot

#FFFFFF

Beginning March 1, 2022, applicants with disabilities who apply for a job at the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE), may be eligible to receive preference in the application process. This preference is similar to the Veterans’ Preference currently in place.

The new pilot, implemented as a result of the passage of SB21-095, recognizes that the skills and talents of people with disabilities are often overlooked, resulting in high rates of unemployment, even in state government. That's why the Disability Hiring Preference Pilot Program seeks to create more equitable hiring practices inclusive to people with disabilities.
