Good afternoon,Colorado does not require paid leave for workers with disabilities. An employee may have a private policy for disability, but no state or federal law requires that they be paid short-term disability while out of work. The employee may be eligible for up to 13 weeks of unpaid leave through FMLA (federal law grants 12 weeks, Colorado law extends it to 13). More information on FMLA can be found here. If an employee is unsure if they have any disability coverage through their workplace, they should check with human resources or their supervisors.
