Employers and workers continue to navigate their obligations, preferences, and business needs in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Workers' demands for flexibility and alternative work arrangements remain strong. In some contexts, independent contractor status may work well for both workers and employers. When using workers properly classified as independent contractors, companies generally are not required to comply with minimum wage or overtime pay requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act; to pay unemployment tax, state or federal income tax, Social Security, or Medicare taxes for independent contractors; or to include independent contractors in retirement and benefits plans.

On January 1, 2023, employers in the State of Colorado must begin collecting and remitting insurance premiums for the voter-approved state-run Family and Medical Leave Insurance (“FAMLI”) Program. Premiums will fund paid leave benefits for qualifying Colorado employees, who can begin making claims and receiving benefits on January 1, 2024. The FAMLI Program imposes obligations on most employers, with few exceptions, although employers with ten or more employees will have additional obligations.
