Colorado's Healthy Families & Workplaces Act:

How to address paid leave and employee abuse, now that it's law


On January 1, Colorado's Healthy Families & Workplaces Act became law, where most employers must provide up to 80 hours o paid leave for COVID-19-related absences. In addition, employers with 16 or more employees must provide up to 48 hours of paid sick leave each calendar year.

The law leaves the door open for employee abuse. Because the law is deferential to employees, what can dealerships do when employees seem to be abusing the new rule? What questions can you ask — and equally important, what can't you ask?

Join us at 8 a.m. Thursday, August 26 as Dean Harris, Employers Council Attorney & Western Slope Area Manager leads the webinar, Colorado's Healthy Families & Workplaces Act: How to address paid eave and employee abuse, now that it's law.

Designed for dealer principals, general managers, HR managers, business managers and controllers, Dean will walk you through what happens to public health leave when the public health emergency ends. He'll discuss differences between paying employees for time off versus separated personal and sick leave, as well as how to pay public health emergency leave for commissioned sales and flag employees.

You'll learn

  • The legal requirements of the Healthy Families & Workplace Act
  • The difference between the general sick leave and public health emergency leave sections of the Act
  • How to transition ot the post-COVID workplace after the requirement for public health emergency expires
  • Common situations that arise in drafting and managing leave plans under the Act
