  • Connecticut employers that are covered by the Connecticut Family and Medical Leave Act (CTFMLA) must be aware of the requirements of both the state law and the federal FMLA as employees may be protected under both laws. See Connecticut Family and Medical Leave Act.
  • Connecticut provides for paid family and medical leave benefits for leave taken under the CTFMLA and for reasons related to domestic violence. See Paid Family and Medical Leave.
  • Some employers in Connecticut must grant a reasonable leave of absence for a disability resulting from pregnancy or a reasonable accommodation for pregnancy, childbirth or a related condition. See Pregnancy Leave and Accommodation.
