New I-9 Form and Elimination of Colorado Affirmation Form
A new law passed in 2016 requires employers with one or more employees (basically every employer in Colorado) to inform employees of their rights regarding pregnancy accommodation. As of December 8, 2016, all current employees should have received written notice of this new law, and new employees must be informed when hired.

There is a revised I-9 Form, read about it HERE
. As you may recall, Colorado previously required you to complete the Colorado Affirmation Form in addition to the I-9 form for each new employee. In 2016, the CRA and others worked to eliminate this redundancy, so now you only need to complete the I-9 form for your new hires.
