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

What is the Update?

The contribution rate effective 2023 will be 0.9%, shared equally (0.45 each) between the employer and employee; employers with fewer than 10 U.S. employees are exempt from deductions and must deduct and remit only the employee portions to the state.  

Eligible employees will be able to take up to 12 weeks of job protected leave per calendar year, and an additional four weeks will be allowed for those who have pregnancy-related complications. 

The maximum benefit an employee can receive in 2024 will be 90% of their earnings up to $1,100 per week. The maximum weekly benefit will then be adjusted annually.

Handbook/Policy Updates

The law does not state any requirements for updating employer handbooks currently. However, you may wish to add information in your handbooks about the CO Paid Leave as the live date of the program draws nearer.   We will also keep our clients posted regarding any updates. 

Notice Requirements

Employers will be required to display a workplace poster. The poster is not released by CO at this time. We provide this to our clients, once published.
