Employee Handbook

The information in the State of Colorado Classified Employee Handbook is provided for the convenience of members of the State of Colorado community. This handbook provides guidance for positions in the State Personnel System. Although these policies and statements cover a wide variety of subjects, there are other important policies and procedures that should be consulted as the need arises. This information is neither all inclusive, nor intended to provide strict interpretation of the State‚ or individual department‚ policies, rather it offers an overview of the work environment. This State of Colorado Employee Handbook, published in May 2016, issued by the Department of Personnel & Administration, Division of Human Resources, supersedes all previous versions of the State of Colorado Classified Employee Handbook.
