Colorado’s Employment Verification Law, C.R.S. 8-2-122, applies to all public and private employers who transact business in Colorado, and is in addition to separate federal Form I-9 requirements.
E-Verify for Private Employers in Colorado
Update coming soon.
Colorado Public Contracts for Services
Effective May 13, 2008, contractors who enter into or renew a public contract for services with Colorado state agencies or political subdivisions must participate in either the federal E-Verify program, OR the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment Program (“Department Program”). The option to enroll in the Department Program instead of E-Verify was created by Colorado State Senate Bill 08-193, which amended the Public Contracts for Services and Illegal Aliens Law, § 8-17.5-101 and 102, C.R.S.
The “Department Program” is essentially the same as for private employers– the contractor must, among other things, complete an affirmation similar to that described above and include a copy with the public contract or renewal.
