NEW Colorado Affirmation Form effective October 1st

Friday, September 19th, 2014

The Colorado Department of Labor & Employment (CDLE) is requiring all employers to use the new mandatory affirmation of legal work status form for all new hires starting October 1, 2014.

The employment verification law applies to all public and private employers in Colorado, and is in addition to separate Federal Form I-9 requirements. Employers must comply with the provisions of the law for all employees hired on or after January 1, 2007 (when the verification law was enacted).

The form should be completed within 20 calendar days of hiring an employee and should be kept with the personnel records of that employee for the duration of their employment.

What other forms are required for each new hire?

  • W-4 Form – Employee Withholding Allowance Certificate (for payroll purposes)
  • I-9 – Employment Eligibility Form
  • Colorado Affirmation of Legal Work Status (Colorado Employers)
  • Download the above under “Downloads

How long do I retain these forms? 

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA), employers are required to track and record payroll and employee records for at least three/four* years . In addition to the FSLA, each state may have its own laws on payroll recordkeeping.

*Be sure to review your state’s labor laws carefully as well as requirements for EACH form (for example, the W-4 you must retain for 4 years, I-9 Form is 3 years from date of hire or 1 year after termination,and Affirmation must be retained throughout duration of employment)
