Resources

Small business owners spend their days concentrating on their particular specialty, but there's one thing they have in common: They all need tools to manage and grow their businesses. Our in-depth educational resources, websites and fact sheets give detailed information about accessing responsible capital; financial tools and management, workplace issues and benefits like retirement, healthcare and paid family leave; and much more. Additionally, we answer frequently asked questions about federal and state legislation and programs that offer publicly-administered access to paid leave and retirement benefits.

Sponsored by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), the proposed Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMILY) Act would create an insurance program enabling workers to take up to 12 weeks of paid time away from work in order to care for a loved one or bond with a new child.

This document is intended to answer any questions small employers might have about the proposed program and its effects on small business owners and their workers.

Colorado’s family leave program currently only provides unpaid leave for certain workers who need to take time off from work to bond with a new child or to care for a seriously ill family member. However, many workers cannot afford to take extended unpaid leave, and some small employers are unable provide paid leave benefits to their employees for an extended period of time.
