Colorado Paid Family & Medical Leave Survey
Good Business Colorado is working to better understand what businesses are currently doing when an employee needs to take leave to care for themselves or a loved one. Additionally, Good Business Colorado seeks to understand what business owners and entrepreneurs "want versus do not want" in a statewide paid family and medical leave insurance program. As Colorado continues to study a possible statewide approach, this short survey will help us understand your perspectives.
