Rifle workers compensation

According to Colorado state law, all workers have a right to compensation- even seasonal, temp, and undocumented ones. Even if your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance, you still have this right, and your employer is not allowed to fire you just because you have a claim. However, some employers may attempt to dismiss you for a reason “unrelated” to your claim, and so it is important to be prepared with professionals who will fight for your rights.

You shouldn’t try to use your health insurance and sick days to cover an injury, because many medical providers screen for workplace injuries, and your care may be denied or billed to workers’ compensation anyway.
