Self-employed and gig workers: you will need to provide either a 2018 or 2019 tax return as part of your application. Claimants do not need to take action to receive the additional $600 weekly benefit amount. More information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
- If your business is temporarily closing or reducing hours to help stop the spread of COVID-19, advise your employees to file or reopen a claim for unemployment benefits as soon as possible. Workers can use the “job attached” option to indicate that they planning to return to the same job, which reduces the requirement for them to seek other employment while receiving benefits.
- Due to the unprecedented increase in claims, the Labor Department is implementing system updates to accommodate increased traffic. Check here for updates.
- You should also consider alternatives to laying off staff through CDLE’s Work-Share Program. The State of Colorado is also working on efforts to match displaced workers with temporary jobs in industries where demand has increased for goods and services, such as logistics, delivery, healthcare, and groceries.
