  • 39% expect difficulty managing compliance across multiple leave programs

This webinar will examine specific employer considerations related to new CT PFML legislation passed on Jan. 1, 2021, that will allow employees working in the state to take up to 12 weeks of leave starting on Jan. 1, 2022.
