Healthy Families and Workplaces Act Resources

Under The Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (HFWA), through December 31, 2020, all employers in Colorado, regardless of size, are required to provide each of their employees paid sick leave for reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic per the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Starting January 1, 2021, the HFWA requires employers with 16 or more employees to provide accrued paid sick time. If you have employees in Colorado, you will want to prepare. To that end, Employers Council has been working to provide you with resources to help you, as listed below:
