    How Does Paid Family & Medical Leave Apply to Me?


    The Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFMLA) offers Connecticut workers the opportunity to take time to attend to personal and family health needs without worrying about lost income. The CT Paid Leave Authority provides Connecticut’s workforce access to paid family and medical leave benefits by offering helpful tools and resources to help administer this new program.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    We understand employees, employers, payroll providers and healthcare providers may have questions about their roles, rights and responsibilities in the PFMLA in Connecticut — here are some common inquiries:




    Is Paid Leave Coverage Different from COVID-19 Paid Leave?

    Yes, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) is a different law from state paid leave. Like the FFCRA, however, Connecticut’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFMLA) provides paid leave benefits to employees who cannot work due to their own serious health condition or the serious health condition of a family member. The PFMLA does not apply to situations when an employee cannot work due to school or daycare





    Does the Paid Leave Program Apply to


    Part-time Employees?

    Yes. All employees who have earned at least $2,325 in the highest quarter of the first four of the five most recent quarters immediately before their application for leave and who are either currently employed by a Connecticut employer or were employed by a Connecticut employer during the 12 weeks immediately preceding the application are eligible to apply for paid leave.
