"An Employer's Guide to CT's new Paid Family Leave Program (PFMLA)"

Recently, Governor Lamont announced the launch of a new website – – the goal of which is helping Connecticut businesses and residents to understand their roles, rights, and responsibilities based on the Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFMLA).

The Connecticut Paid Leave program is set to begin on January 1, 2021, making the new website a vital tool for all impacted employees, employers, sole proprietors and self-employed individuals to understand their roles and responsibilities. Paid Leave program benefits become accessible to qualified employees beginning on January 1, 2022.

The new website serves as more than just an informational guide to the new PFMLA legislation, but also provides many of the tools needed by employers, employees, third-party administrators and healthcare professionals to begin preparing for and implementing the changes necessitated by this new program.

Some of these tools include:

· Downloadable fact sheets, video guides and timelines specific to employer, employee and sole proprietor/self-employed individuals' needs.

· An estimator tool to help employees anticipate payroll deductions. (The program is funded through payroll deductions)

· Resources for sole proprietors and self-employed individuals interested in opting in to the program.

· Resources for employers interested in applying for an exemption from the program.

· Resources specific to all business types on how to register with the CT Paid Leave Authority.

· Frequently Asked Questions that are updated periodically to include the most common inquiries as this new program is rolled out.

I hope that you find this website's information to be helpful to you, yours family, and your business.
