Felon Friendly Employers in Colorado

Print Friendly

As soon as you are charged with a felony offense in Colorado, you should take the time to talk to your Attorney to figure out what your life will look like if you are found guilty of the charge.

Depending on the crime, your life could be substantially different after being found guilty of a felony.  You will typically lose your right to vote, lose your right to own a weapon, have difficulty finding housing, and have difficulty finding a job.  A number of felonies will prevent you from receiving government benefits or financial aide.  You may also have to register with the State (in the case of sex offenses).

Fortunately, there are a number of organizations that are helping people to deal with these issues.  When you are placed on probation or parole, you will receive help in finding resources to get you back on your feet.  The Community Corrections program in Colorado is a noteworthy example of a program helping people get back to their normal life after a prison sentence.

It is important to remember that there are people who are there to help you.  In terms of finding a job, there are some employers who are known for being “felon friendly.”  These employers include the following companies:
