What are the details?
Effective July 1, 2022, every employer is required to provide its employees with written notice describing:
- Their entitlement to job-protected leave provided under the CT FMLA and the terms under which such leave may be used
- The opportunity to file a claim for compensation under the CTPL Act
- The retaliation protections provided by the Acts
- The right to file a complaint with the Labor Commissioner
The notice must be provided in writing to employees both upon hire and annually thereafter.
The proposed CT FMLA regulations indicate employers may fulfill the notice requirement by providing the required information in an employee handbook, but those regulations have not been finalized.
