The Colorado Division of Workers' Compensation is the state office responsible for administering the Colorado Workers' Compensation Act. In doing so, it recognizes the intent of the Colorado General Assembly to ensure the quick and efficient delivery of disability and medical benefits to injured workers at a reasonable cost to employers, without the necessity of litigation.

The Division does not pay benefits on a claim. Rather, employers purchase insurance coverage or, if qualified, are self-insured. No portion of this cost may be deducted from an employee's wages. As the agency overseeing workers' compensation in this state the Division establishes rules, procedures and programs to implement the statutes that govern workers' compensation.
