Announcement  •

Dear DU community, 

Beginning January 2024, most DU employees will see a new payroll tax listed on their pay statements for the Colorado Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program (FAMLI). This payroll deduction is labeled “CO Family Leave Insurance,” a contribution made by the employee that totals 0.45% of their wage. The University covered the employee portion of these contributions for 2023.  

The Colorado FAMLI program provides all eligible employees a portion of their weekly salary for up to 12 weeks of leave to care for themselves or a family member, with an additional four weeks of leave for complications during pregnancy or childbirth.  

If you want to learn more about DU’s commitment to FAMLI and read more about frequently asked questions, please visit this page. For assistance with FAMLI and other benefits, email
