Family Medical Leave (FML)
Family Medical Leave may be taken by eligible employees for the following medical reasons:
The addition of a child through birth, adoption, or foster care.
The serious health condition of the employee or an immediate family member.
To care for a service member (current member of the Armed Forces) who becomes seriously injured or ill during active duty.
When a qualifying exigency arises due to a spouse, child, or parent of the employee being on active duty in the Reserves or National Guard in support of a contingency operation.
Colorado voters approved the Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance in November 2020. This provides workers a portion of their weekly salary for up to 12 weeks of leave to care for themselves or their families. The measure is funded by employers and employees in a 50/50 split.
