A proposal for paid family and medical leave (FAMLI) has undergone substantial modifications, but its future on the Colorado legislative agenda this year is anything but certain. In 2019, the Colorado legislature created a task force to study paid FAMLI programs, which provided recommendations in January to legislators for a plan covering Colorado workers. 

Some of the highlights of the proposal are:

The main reason the bill is in jeopardy, is that it just lost two of its four sponsors this week. According to 9News, at least one of the sponsors dropping off issued a statement expressing concerned that the bill didn’t do enough to protect those working low-wage jobs that lack stability.

We’ll be watching this bill closely to see if it gets introduced, and if so, watching its progress as it moves through the Colorado legislature. If you would like to share your thoughts about the proposal, we encourage you to reach out to your legislator or provide public comment on the bill while it is being discussed in committee, should it get that far.

If you have any questions about how this bill could impact you, please reach out to your Fall River Client Manager!
