Date: Jun 10, 2022

On April 12, 2022, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extended its determination that a public emergency still exists due to COVID-19. As a result, the Colorado Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (HFWA) requirement to supplement employees’ regular paid sick leave relevant to a public health emergency will also remain in effect; at least until August 13, 2022. In accordance with the HFWA, supplemental paid sick leave will continue “until four weeks after the official termination or suspension of the public health emergency” by HHS.

Additional information can be found on the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment’s webpage.
