Senate Bill 20-205, enacted in 2020, required each employer with 16 or more employees to provide paid sick leave to employees beginning January 1, 2021, and every employer to provide paid sick leave beginning January 1, 2022. This bill delays each of these requirements by one calendar year.
The amount of wages paid to an individual employee on which an employer is required to pay premiums into the unemployment compensation fund is scheduled to increase in the calendar year beginning January 1, 2021, and each year thereafter pursuant to Senate Bill 20-207, enacted in 2020. This bill delays the first increase until the calendar year beginning January 1, 2022, and delays each subsequent increase thereafter by one year.
Senate Bill 20-207 also prohibited the division of unemployment insurance in the department of labor and employment from assessing a solvency surcharge against employers to be paid into the unemployment compensation fund for the calendar years 2021 and 2022. This bill extends this prohibition through the calendar year 2023.
Senate Bill 20-215, enacted in 2020, required that the health insurance affordability enterprise assess and collect fees from health insurance carriers each year starting in 2022. This bill delays the assessment and collection of the fees by one calendar year.
