On Friday, July 9th, Governor Polis ended the Health Emergency Executive Orders for COVID-19 and rescinded all previous Executive Orders issued due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He also signed a Recovery Executive Order to focus only on those measures related to the State’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. The HFWA still requires COVID related leave time due to the existence of the PHE at the federal level. Some employers may choose to optionally continue with the voluntary extension of the FFCRA, which is slated to expire 9/30/2021. Confused? Understandable. Reach out to InTANDEM HR and we will help you navigate the leave laws. Until then, we are hoping you all feel and are well!
