Q. We recently prevailed before the CCRD, which conducted an extensive investigation into a charge of discrimination. Now our former employee has filed an agency appeal. What will happen next?
A. You will have a chance to see anything the employee submitted as part of the appeal, and you will have a chance to submit material in response.
Sworn statements and documents are more persuasive than arguments alone. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission will review the decision of the agency and decide either to uphold, remand or reverse it.
The appeal process generally takes only a few weeks, which is much shorter than the initial investigatory phase.
