Summary by Dirk Langeveld
Connecticut employers who fell behind on their contributions to the state’s paid family and medical leave program will have a few months to catch up, the Connecticut Paid Leave Authority recently announced.
Eligible employers are required to collect 0.5 percent deductions from employee paychecks to contribute to the Connecticut Paid Leave Authority on a quarterly basis. Companies that missed required deductions in 2021 can deduct an additional 1 percent, for a total of 1.5 percent, through March 31.
The bump-up in contributions can only occur during this period. Questions can be directed to the Connecticut Paid Leave Authority through their website.
