The paid sick leave law in Colorado, the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act, goes into effect Jan. 1, 2021, and includes a coronavirus-related component.
Colorado has a new paid sick leave law.
Gov. Jared Polis on July 14 signed the bill, which goes into effect Jan. 1, 2021. It applies to all employers in Colorado.
The legislation calls for employees to accrue one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked, capped at 48 hours. Applying to both hourly and salaried employees, accrual begins when the employee starts work.
Under Colorado’s new paid sick leave law — dubbed the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act — employees are allowed to use leave as it is accrued. Any unused paid leave time can be carried over the following calendar year.
