About the Program

Connecticut employers and employees are subject to a tangled web of various employment leave laws. This seminar focuses primarily on three of those laws and programs: the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Connecticut state Family and Medical Leave Act (CT FMLA) as recently amended, and Connecticut’s new Paid Family and Medical Leave insurance program (Connecticut Paid Leave or CTPL). The seminar summarizes the basics of those laws, discusses how they interact with each other, and is focused on exploring those interactions through case study examples to help attendees untangle them where they overlap. The program is intended to be interactive, with the panel field questions from the audience.

You Will Learn

  • The basic provisions of FMLA, CT FMLA and CTPL (e.g., coverage, eligibility, qualification, benefits, protections, requirements).
  • How those laws are consistent or inconsistent.
  • How to apply those laws in situations where they may apply and how to resolve conflicts or potential conflicts.
