The Healthy Families and Workplaces Act of Colorado

Governor Polis signed the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (HFWA or the Act) into law Tuesday, July 14. The Act took effect immediately upon the Governor’s signature; however, certain provisions of the Act will not take effect until 2021 and 2022 depending on the size of the employer.

For the remainder of this year, the Act will require all employers to comply with the emergency paid sick leave requirements of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Currently, the FFCRA applies to employers with fewer than 500 employees. The Act will extend FFCRA coverage to larger employers in the state. January 1, 2021, employers with 16 or more employees will need to begin providing paid sick leave to their employees.

On January 1, 2022, all employers will be subject to the Act’s requirements. For this Act, the term employer means both private and public employers, excluding only the federal government. Also, due to the overlap between the Colorado Health Emergency Leave with Pay (“Colorado HELP”) Rules and the HFWA, the Division is terminating the requirements of the Colorado HELP Rules after July 14th, because July 15th is the first full day in which HFWA is in effect.

CMCA will provide additional details as they come out.  The State of Colorado will also be releasing a poster to help employers become / stay compliant.
