We officially made CT next! Beginning in 2021, workers will begin to contribute a small amount of their weekly earnings into a fund administered by the state for paid family and medical leave. By 2022, eligible workers will be able to take up to 12 weeks of paid leave to care for themselves, a loved one, or a new child.

A lot of people have questions about how the program is funded, how it will work, and how workers will know if they’re eligible for leave. Check out our new FAQ on the bill that passed here: Paid Leave is Coming to CT! FAQ

Do you have a question that isn’t answered on the FAQ? Email Maddie: mgranato@cwealf.org. Also be sure to follow the Campaign on Facebook here for additional updates!
