FAMLI Basics For Employers

The FAMLI program is funded through premiums paid by both workers and employers (requirements depend on total number of employees). The portion paid by workers is made via a payroll deduction facilitated by their employer. Most workers will see a FAMLI deduction coming out of their paychecks starting in January 2023.

  • The employee share of FAMLI premiums is set at 0.45% of employee wages through 2024
    • For every $100 an employee earns, an employer may deduct up to $0.45. For someone making $45,000/year that’s a deduction of less than $8 per biweekly paycheck.

FAMLI Employer FAQs

How and when am I required to pay premiums?

Both employers and employees must begin paying into the fund on January 1, 2023, through payroll deductions. Employers need to submit to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment both their share (if required) and their employee's share of the premium through an online system at the end of each quarter. These quarterly filings should be similar to how most companies submit their unemployment insurance today.

These contributions build the FAMLI fund during 2023. Starting on January 1, 2024, employees may begin to file claims to receive their FAMLI benefits through an online process in development by the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment (CDLE).

How will FAMLI impact me as an employer and how will ASAP help?

There are premiums and reports that will need to be calculated with each paycheck, as well as reported and paid at the end of the quarter to the CDLE FAMLI Division. ASAP will calculate these premiums, make payments, and file quarterly reports as part of your payroll services.

NOTE: We need your FAMLI account number to file and submit payments on your behalf to keep you compliant.
