Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Employees are not entitled to unused sick time upon separation of employment in the state of Colorado. Only if you had an employment contract which expressly provided to the contrary would you have any claim to those accrued days.
