  • require each employer in Colorado to submit documentation to the director of the Division of Labor that demonstrates that the employer is in compliance with federal employment verification requirements;
  • authorize the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) to conduct random audits of employers to ensure compliance with federal employment verification laws;
