Colorful Colorado contains some of the most stunning scenery in the world. The jagged Rockies sweep through the state and scrape the sky from Boulder to Telluride and Grand Junction. Millions of tourists flock to the Centennial State every year to enjoy the wonders of nature, along with Colorado’s thousands of independently owned restaurants, brewpubs, hotels, galleries, boutiques, and ski resorts. But Colorado is much more than tourism and the state’s diverse economy. Colorado is notable for its older industries, like agriculture and mining, as well as its concentration of high-tech industries and scientific research companies.
Denver’s financial district along 17th Street is known as the Wall Street of the Rockies because of its ranks of mortgage specialists, securities and commodity brokers, and real estate and mutual fund managers. The Denver metro area is home to major employers like Qwest Communications, Coors Brewing, Dish Network, Western Union, and Lockheed Martin. Whether a Colorado company employs three people or three thousand, it is required to provide workers' compensation to its employees.
The Colorado Workers' Compensation Act was enacted in 1915. The law mandates that employers cover medical care and provide wage replacement for injured workers. As part of the bargain, workers' compensation is the exclusive remedy for workers injured on the job, and businesses are protected from costly, time-consuming lawsuits.
Private insurers licensed by the state of Colorado provide many benefits to businesses purchasing workers' compensation insurance. Insurers offer safety education and fraud protection programs. Some industries purchasing workers' compensation insurance in Colorado include automotive, accommodation and food services, finance and insurance, administrative services, art, entertainment and recreation, real estate, manufacturing, and professional service.
