November is “Hire a Veteran First Month.” With Veterans Day falling every year on November 11, the month has long been a time to honor our veterans and ensure they are returning home to opportunity. All month CDLE will be hosting events to help connect veterans with employers and training resources to lead to good paying jobs.
You can keep up with the work CDLE is doing to on behalf of veterans and learn about the benefits of hiring a veteran by visiting the Hire a Colorado Veteran website. This newly redesigned site was created to increase veterans’ awareness of the workforce services and resources available to them and help employers find information on hiring veterans.
The Colorado Department of Labor & Employment connects job seekers with great jobs, provides an up-to-date and accurate picture of the economy to help decision making, assists workers who have been injured on the job, ensures fair labor practices, helps those who have lost their jobs by providing temporary wage replacement through unemployment benefits, and protects the workplace - and Colorado communities - with a variety of consumer protection and safety programs.
