  • require each employer in Colorado to submit documentation to the director of the Division of Labor in the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) that demonstrates that the employer is in compliance with federal employment verification requirements;
  • authorize the CDLE to conduct random audits of employers to ensure compliance with federal employment verification laws;
  • require the CDLE to request documentation upon receipt of a valid complaint that an employer is non-compliant with federal employment verification laws; and
  • fine an employer for failing to provide required documentation or for providing fraudulent documentation.
