Task Force Formed to Study Implementation of Family Medical Leave Insurance Program

On May 30, 2019, Gov. Polis signed SB19-188 (the FAMLI Family Medical Leave Insurance Program) into law. This law creates a study of the implementation of a paid family and medical leave program in Colorado, including a task force comprised of members appointed by the governor and the legislature to analyze the costs and administration of a paid leave program for all employees in Colorado and to make a recommendation for a FAMLI program in time for the 2020 Colorado Legislative session.

Since the task force’s recommendations have not yet been considered and a FAMLI program not yet implemented, employers don’t need to worry too much about this yet. However, employers should be mindful of potential requirements such as reporting requirements and premium contributions.
