Immigration Status of Employees/Independent Contractors
IMPORTANT: Colorado law imposes obligations on employees to verify the immigration status of their employees that extend beyond the obligations imposed by federal law.
Colorado law (C.R.S. § 8-2-122) imposes the following additional requirements:
(1) Within 20 days after hiring each new employee, an authorized representative of the employer must sign an affirmation that the employer has complied with all of the immigration laws.
(2) The employer must retain legible copies of both the affirmation and the documents required by federal law to verify immigration status. This means that the employer must retain the Form I-9 for the employee AND a copy of the documents the employer examines in the course of completing the Form I-9. The Division of Labor and Employment may conduct random audits of employer files for compliance with this document retention law. To comply with the affirmation requirement, it is recommended that employers download the “Affirmation of Legal Work Status” form from the Division of Labor and Employment website. This form is available at: http://www.coworkforce.com/lab/AffirmationForm.pdf.
Independent Contractor Requirements
Colorado law requires all public entities (including charter schools) to include numerous certifications and covenants in all of their personal services contracts with independent contractors regarding the immigration status of the independent contractor’s employees and subcontractors. See C.R.S. § 8-17.5-102.
In addition, if the personal services contractor is an individual or a sole proprietorship (i.e., not a corporation or other form of legal entity), the contractor must sign an affidavit verifying immigration status. § 24-76.5-103.
