In November 2020, Colorado voters approved Proposition 118 to create a state-run social insurance program, the Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Act (FAMLI). The FAMLI program will provide paid family and medical leave benefits to eligible workers in Colorado funded by premiums paid by employers and workers. Independent contractors, self-employed individuals, and gig workers also may participate if they elect to pay their own premiums. The program will ensure that all Colorado workers have access to paid leave to take care of themselves or their family during life circumstances that pull them away from their jobs — like caring for a new child or a loved one with a serious health condition.

Important deadlines are approaching for Colorado employers:

  1. Fall 2022, employers can register with the FAMLI Division and, if electing an alternative to participation in the state FAMLI program, employers can seek approval for self-insured plans or private insurance plans providing comparable coverage.
  2. Beginning January 1, 2023, employers must start collecting premiums for FAMLI.
  3. On January 1, 2024, workers will be eligible for FAMLI benefits and protections.

In this webinar, we will discuss the many advantages for covered workers and employers, as well as the reasons a covered worker can take FAMLI leave. In understanding how the FAMLI program works in Colorado, employers can plan and identify strategies for responding to the trend as it expands across the country.

Topics Covered:

  • Colorado Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Act (FAMLI)
