Connecticut’s new Paid Family and Medical Leave Program goes into effect this January. Do you know what that means for your business or what you need to do to get ready? WBDC held three roundtable discussions about the impact to small businesses of CT’s Paid Family Medical Leave Act.

This multi-part series is co-sponsored by WBDC and the Connecticut Department of Economic Development (DECD).

Roundtable Session #1: What Does CT’s PFMLA Mean For Your Business?

In this first session, WBDC CEO Fran Pastore, Andrea Barton Reeves, Chief Executive Officer, CT Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Authority, and DECD Deputy Commissioner Glendowlyn Thames will discuss how this legislation affects you, your employees, and your business. Don’t have any employees? Sole proprietors and self-employed individuals
have the option to enroll in the program too!

Roundtable Session #2: Sole Proprietor/Small Business: Applying Paid Leave to Your Workplace – Legal Perspective

Learn about the legal implications of Paid Leave at your small business. For this session, Britt-Marie Cole-Johnson, Partner, Robinson & Cole, will join Andrea Barton Reeves, CEO of CT Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Authority (PFMLIA),  and Erin Choquette, PFMLIA Acting General Counsel, to walk through all of the legal aspects you should know.

Roundtable Session #3: Registering Your Business for CT’s PFMLA

Every business with one or more employees will need to register with
the CT Paid Family and Medical Leave Authority to establish an account.  Join us for this session to learn what you need to do, and when and how it needs to be done.

Each Roundtable Session includes a presentation followed by the answers to questions from attendees on the day of the recording. Links to resources that were discussed are provided in the Chat sections to the right of the recording.
