SB20-205 - Amended, referred to Senate Appropriations

11:25:19 AM  

Senators Fenberg and Bridges, bill sponsors, presented Senate Bill 20-205.  The bill creates the Healthy Families and Workplace Act and requires that all employers in Colorado provide paid sick leave to each employee.  Beginning January 1, 2020, all employers in Colorado must provide one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to a maximum of 48 hours per year.  Employees begin accruing paid sick leave when employment begins and may use that leave as it is accrued.  Employees are permitted to carry accrued sick leave forward to use in the future, but the employer is not required to allow the employee to take more than it is required to grant in a given 12-month period.  An employee may use paid sick leave in hourly increments.  The employee must make a good faith effort to provide notice of any paid sick leave.
