On December 31, 2020, the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act expired. In its place, effective January 1, 2021, is the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act
(HFWA) which provides expanded sick leave coverage for all employees including university staff, faculty, temporary employees, student workers, and working retirees.
This act allows for sick leave to be used during a public emergency. If you are experiencing a qualifying event, a CU Denver | Anschutz HFWA leave application
must be completed and documentation provided.
