Colorado repeals employment verification law

Effective Aug. 10, 2016, employers in Colorado will no longer be required to complete and maintain the Colorado Affirmation Form for new hires.

On June 8, 2016, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed House Bill 16-1114 into law, which will repeal the state’s Colorado Employment Verification law. The Colorado Employment Verification law required employers in the state to complete and retain a written or electronic version of an entirely separate affirmation form known as the Colorado Affirmation Form, in addition to complying with all existing federal I-9 requirements.

By repealing the Colorado Employment Verification law, the state is aiming to eliminate the burden on the state’s employers by relieving them of the duplicative requirements related to Form I-9 and employment eligibility verification.

Employers in Colorado should continue to complete and retain Colorado Affirmation Forms for new hires before the law goes into effect on Aug. 10, 2016. Employers are also advised to retain existing forms that are on file for current employees even after the law goes into effect, as these were required at the time of hire.

The federal Form I-9 is unaffected by this law and is still required to be completed within the first 3 days of employment.
