Update Colorado Employment Security Act

Abstract

For the purpose of establishing a worker's eligibility for unemployment benefits,"immediate family" includes: A sibling of the worker who is under 18 years of age and for whom the worker stands in loco parentis; and A sibling of the worker who is incapable of self-care due to a mental or physical disability or a long-term illness. A worker who separates from a job because the worker reasonably believes that continuing employment would jeopardize the safety of the worker or any member of the worker's immediate family as a result of domestic violence no longer must provide certain documentation to establish the worker's eligibility for unemployment benefits. The term "severance allowance" is substituted for "remuneration" in a provision that concerns remuneration received by an individual who has been separated from employment. Subject to the approval of the executive director of the department of labor and employment, the director of the division of unemployment insurance may enter into an interagency agreement with the department of law for assistance in enforcing certain provisions concerning the misclassification of employees by an employer. Fines imposed pursuant to the enforcement of laws concerning employment security must be transferred to the department of labor and employment and credited to the unemployment revenue fund. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
