Temporary Paid Sick Leave
In light of the increased presence of COVID-19 in Colorado, Governor Polis has declared a state of emergency. Included in the Executive Order was a directive for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment to engage in emergency rulemaking for temporary paid sick leave.
As a result of the rulemaking, The Colorado Health Emergency Leave with Pay Rules (“Colorado HELP” 7 CCR 1103-10) requires up to four days of paid sick for employees being tested for coronavirus COVID-19 in select industries which include: leisure and hospitality; food services; child care; education, including transportation, food service, and related work at educational establishments; home health, if working with elderly, disabled, ill, or otherwise high-risk individuals and; nursing homes and community living facilities.
The requirement is not on top of sick leave an employer already provides and does not cover wage replacement should an employee test positive and require quarantine resulting in lost work time and wages.
Workers are covered regardless of pay rate or method (hourly, weekly, piece rate, etc.); the daily pay during leave is either their established daily rate or, if their pay fluctuates, their average daily pay for the past month.
Contact Boulder County Public Health at 303-441-1564 if your staff presents with or has been diagnosed with COVID-19. As it currently stands, an employee showing symptoms or having been diagnosed with COVID-19 does not mandate closing the facility; however it is an automatic mandate to contact local public health to assess the situation.
