Connecticut Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Authority

The mission of the Connecticut Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Authority (Paid Leave Authority) is to provide Connecticut’s workforce access to paid family leave benefits and to empower employers by offering helpful tools for understanding their vital role and provide support to navigate the program. This program allows those employees working in Connecticut the opportunity to address personal and family health needs without the consequence of lost income. For employers, the Paid Leave Authority can provide the tools and resources needed for compliance and to promote happy, healthy, vibrant, and inclusive workplaces.

On June 25, 2019, Connecticut passed legislation to create a comprehensive paid family and medical leave insurance program through the signing of Connecticut Public Act 19-25, An Act Concerning Paid Family and Medical Leave, as amended sections 232 through 235 of Public Act 19-117.
