The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) has released a new mandatory Affirmation of Legal Work Status form that must be used by employers for new hires within the State of Colorado who are hired after October 1, 2014.
All Colorado employers must use the current form listed above with the revision date of 09/01/14 for employees hired between October 1, 2014 and October 1, 2017. Earlier versions of the form should have been completed for all Colorado employees hired on or after January 1, 2007.
The law applies to all private and public Colorado employers and is to be used in addition to separate federal Form I-9 requirements. An "employer" is defined as a person or entity that transacts business in Colorado; at any time, employs another person to perform services of any nature; and has control of the payment of wages for such services or is the officer, agent, or employee of the person or entity having control of the payment of wages.
