10 Resolutions for 2023
It’s that time of year again. Time for winter driving, sunsets before 5:00 pm, the countdown to Spring Training, and, of course, New Year’s resolutions. So, to join in this long-standing tradition, the COSHRM Connection created the following resolutions, in no particular order:

1. Legislation, legislation, legislation
To borrow an oft-repeated expression, “if you don’t get involved in legislation before it’s passed (e.g., write emails to your representatives/senators; participate in local governmental/legislative committees), you lose the right to complain about it after it’s passed.” The 2023 Colorado legislative session is certain to be a very active one regarding employment laws. So, now is the time to get involved in shaping how those laws will look (and Save the Date for COSHRM's Day at the Capitol event on April 6).

2. Sign-up for FAMLI
The Colorado Paid Leave FAMLI website recently went live. All employers can now access and register their business at famli.colorado.gov. My FAMLI+ Employer will operate similarly to My UI Employer, allowing employers to report wage data, remit premium payments, apply for an exemption with a private plan, and upload letters of declination votes. Most Colorado businesses will need to register in My FAMLI+ Employer before the first premium payment is due April 30, 2023.

3. Let employees know about FAMLI
Employers are required to notify their employees about the new FAMLI program by January 1, 2023. So, now is the time to start posting the CDLE FAMLI poster, sending out paycheck stuffers, etc. See the FAMLI Toolkit for Employers for more information.
