View Recording

In 2020, Colorado employers saw several major developments in laws impacting the workplace. Some of the biggest changes go into effect on January 1, 2021. Staying current with this ever-changing legal landscape can be difficult, to say the least. Husch Blackwell has been closely tracking these shifting circumstances and will summarize important highlights in a single one-hour discussion.


  • Healthy Families and Workplaces Act
    Effective January 1, 2021, Colorado employers will be required to provide up to 48 hours of annual paid sick leave, or 80 hours if a public health emergency is in effect.
  • Equal Pay for Equal Work Act
    Effective January 1, 2021, Colorado employers must ensure equal pay for women and follow rules about posting job notices.
  • Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program
    Colorado voters passed Proposition 118, a requirement with premiums to be collected in 2023 and benefits going into effect in 2024.
