Event description
Join us for a breakfast study session and an open conversation about the FAMLI proposal with local businesses.

About this Event

Leading business owners and managers recognize that workers inevitably need time away from work for health or family issues. Small business owners and their employees are particularly affected by the current lack of access to paid family leave since these robust benefits are costly.

The Colorado state legislature is considering policy proposals that would join establish a program guaranteeing access to paid leave to care for a newborn child or a sick family member or take care of one's own medical needs.

Join Good Business Colorado, Best for Colorado and B Local Colorado for an open conversation on the policy components currently being discussed in Colorado. Doors will open at 7:45 am, and the study session will run from 8-10 am. Breakfast and coffee will be provided!

During this study session, we will:

• Cover the Basic Concepts of a Business-Friendly Colorado paid family and medical leave program

• Request your opinions on the potential business advantages and disadvantages, while answering questions and learning your perspectives on the various policy options being discussed and debated in Colorado

• Participants will guide the focuses of the breakfast conversation by deciding which of the 16 policy focus areas the FAMLI Task Force is currently studying they want to discuss in greater detail.
