For months, employers have been eagerly awaiting updated regulations that address the revisions to the Connecticut Family and Medical Leave Act.

At last, on March 22, 2022, the Connecticut Department of Labor (“CT DOL”) released its final proposed amended CTFMLA regulations, answering questions that had remained unanswered by the revised law.

Indeed, the proposed regulations amend several key provisions of the prior CTFMLA regulations.

My colleagues, Rauchell Beckford-Anderson and Julie Jaquays, joined me in drafting a post on our sister site, Employment Law Letter.

Among the topics:

  • What qualifies as a “relationship with that person to be equivalent to that of one with a family member”?
  • Who needs to receive a notice about CTFMLA? (Hint: everyone)
  • Can employers require employees to use paid leave concurrently with CTFMLA leave?

The proposed regulations become final when the Secretary of State publishes them. So stay tuned.
