CT Family & Medical Leave and CT Paid Leave

CT Family & Medical Leave and CT Paid Leave are two separate laws to help eligible workers who need to take leave from their job to care for a loved one or for their own medical reasons. The CT Family and Medical Leave Act provides eligible employees with job-protected leave, and the CT Paid Leave Act provides eligible workers with income replacement.
