As we all know from reading this blog faithfully and regularly—right, folks?—all employers in the state of Colorado, no matter what industry you’re in and no matter what the size of your company—must have at least one unemployment insurance poster on each of their premises, according to state labor laws. This poster should go up on the wall in your break room, lunch room, human resource office, or anywhere else accessible in your facility, as soon as you become an employer in the state (or as close to thereabouts as possible).
One of the other things that any new employer in the state of Colorado should do, however, is make sure to file the right forms with the state Department of Labor in order to get on to the state’s unemployment insurance system.
TO get on to this Unemployment Insurance Program in Colorado, employers have to submit the form called the Form CR 0100, or the Colorado Business Registration form, which is needed to help you officially declare yourself as a new employer in the state of Colorado and to set up an account with the Unemployment Insurance Program.
It used to be in Colorado that the Unemployment Insurance Program would help its employers set up these new accounts by getting all of the info it needed off of the company’s tax records, documents, checks and other records they had on file. Then the CR 0100 form would be sent off to the employer, and the final info would be sent in to the state.
Now, however, the state requires all new businesses—and bought and acquired businesses—to submit just the CR 0100. That leaves it completely up to you and other employers like you to get that form in and open your account with the Unemployment Insurance Program.
