The new Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program (FAMLI program) will provide most Colorado workers up to 12 weeks of paid time off to take care of themselves or their family during life events that pull them away from their jobs starting in January 2024; however, both employers and employees will contribute premiums for the program beginning January 1, 2023. Join us to learn more about the voter-approved program and ask the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment your questions. We know this can be complicated so take advantage of this upcoming opportunity.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • How to Calculate Premiums
  • Options for Local Governments
  • How Self-Employed Workers Can Participate in FAMLI
  • Benefits for Small Businesses

Space is limited, so please RSVP HERE. ASL and ESL interpreters are available upon request with a required three business days notice.

Virtual options will be available in addition to the in-person option.

The Vail Valley town hall is presented by Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Colorado Workforce Center, High Country Human Resource Association and Vail Valley Partnership.


Colorado voters approved Proposition 118 in November of 2020, paving the way for a state-run Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI) program. The FAMLI program will ensure all Colorado workers have access to paid leave in order to take care of themselves or their family during life circumstances that pull them away from their jobs — like growing their family or taking care of a loved one with a serious health condition. FAMLI will start providing benefits to employees beginning January 1, 2024.

Both employers and employees will contribute premiums for the program. Employees may start to see a premium contribution on their pay stubs beginning January 1, 2023.

Eligible employees will receive up to twelve weeks of leave. Those who experience pregnancy or childbirth complications will receive an additional four weeks.
