  • Require each employer in Colorado to submit documentation to the director of the division of labor (director) within the department of labor and employment that demonstrates that the employer is in compliance with federal employment verification requirements;
  • Authorize the director to conduct random audits of employers to ensure compliance with the federal laws;
  • Require the director to request documentation if the director receives a valid complaint that an employer is not in compliance with federal law; and
  • Fine an employer for failing to provide documentation or for the provision of fraudulent documentation.
