What happens if a worker sues and loses? Does the employer get triple damages too?

Good question! The right of private action is a standard private lawsuit, so there's always the potential of countersuit. I'm not sure what the maximum amount one can sue for in Denver is, but I would imagine it is like most countersuits (attorney's fees + amount of damage to the reputation). But there's no statue in the law that owners can claim 3x. Only workers.
