All employers are expected to participate in the Colorado FAMLI program. Employers can decide if they want to administer the FAMLI program through an approved private plan, or through the State of Colorado. MJ Absence Management can run a detailed analysis of your organization to help you understand FAMLI’s financial impact and determine your best plan to understand important dates and deadlines. On January 1, 2023, premium contributions began. The deadline to apply for a private plan is October, 2023 with an effective date of January 1, 2024.
