End of COVID-19 Policy Regarding
Expired documents for I-9
Effective: July 31st, 2022

By: Debra Fowler, SHRM-CP
Training & Compliance Manager

The Department of Homeland Security allowed flexibility for employers as of March 20, 2020, for accepting List B documents that were expired on or after March 1, 2020.  This flexibility is ending on April 30, 2022, and as of May 1, 2022, employers are required to return to only accepting UNEXPIRED List B documents.

Employers must collect unexpired List B documents for any employees who were hired between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2022, that provided an expired List B document.  Employers must then correct the Form I-9 using the updated documentation.  All collection of unexpired documents and Form I-9 corrections must be completed no later than July 31, 2022.

Here Are the Steps to Follow:

  1. Is the person still employed? 

    • No, - no further action is needed. 

    • Yes - proceed to Step 2.

  2. Contact the employee and request an unexpired document that establishes identity.  This can be a different or unexpired List B document or a document from List A.

  3. Once collected, in the Additional Information section of the Form I-9 the following information needs to be entered:

    1. Title of the document

    2. Issuing Authority for the document

    3. Number of the document

    4. Expiration Date of the document

    5. Date and initial by the person making the correction.

Workers' Compensation 
Effective: August 10, 2022

By: Debra Fowler, SHRM-CP
Training & Compliance Manager

Colorado employees who are injured on the job are required to follow a reporting process and if needed, and they agree, receive medical treatment for on-the-job sustained injuries.  Employees currently have four (4) days to report the injury to their employer, and the employer currently has ten (10) days to report to the workers’ compensation insurance company.

Effective August 10, 2022, the reporting window for employees will be expanded to ten (10) days from their date of injury, and if they fail to report within the timeline, the employee may lose up to one day’s compensation for each day’s failure to report.

Non-Compete Changes
Effective: August 9, 2022

By: Debra Fowler, SHRM-CP

"The bill would . . . make most restrictive [non-compete] employment agreements void in Colorado"

HB 22-1317
was passed through the Colorado Senate, and if signed by Governor Polis, will go into effect on or about August 9, 2022, for all Colorado employers and businesses that employ workers and independent contractors in Colorado and will impact any new agreements or renewed agreements entered into after the effective date of the law.

The bill would amend the current non-compete statute (CRS 8-2-113) and make most restrictive employment agreements void in Colorado unless the agreement is with “highly compensated” workers, as defined by Colorado’s PAY CALC order, is for the protection of company trade secrets, and is “no broader than reasonably necessary to protect trade secrets.”

Compliance: Non-Compete Changes

Hello, I’m Krissi!
I’ve worked for Vida HR for almost 3 years as the
Benefits Administrator. Previously I have worked as an HR Representative and dabbled in recruiting. I am so grateful for the benefits team as we work seamlessly together to ensure our clients are our top priority! My PI profile is a Specialist, and these traits are reflected in my everyday tasks as I’m constantly working in a fast-paced environment while remaining attentive to detail. Even with all the knowledge I’ve gained thus far, I am still learning and growing every day, and I feel extremely blessed to be a part of such a wonderful & successful company!

A little about me:

I am a mother to the most amazing little 4-year-old boy, Joey! Between my son and my two canine besties, I’m always on the move! However, I do believe in nurturing mental health, so I’ll schedule the occasional appointment for a mani-pedi! 😊 I love woodworking ever since I took shop class in Junior High, and I’ve recently taken an interest in epoxy and resin art and hope to bond those skills in the future! I enjoy being in the great outdoors (we camp every summer), reading Dean Koontz and James Patterson thrillers, and simply spending time with the people I love!
