Every covered employer must register with the CT Paid Leave Authority. Registration is required by the employer even if you use a third-party administrator or payroll provider who enrolled your business or organization as part of their batch enrollment process.

Registration is also required if you anticipate applying for a private plan to fulfill your obligations under the CT Paid Leave statute.


The funding to support CT Paid Leave comes from employee payroll deductions; there is no employer match. These payroll deductions are capped at 0.5% on earnings up to the Social Security contribution limit.

Notify your employees that they should expect their paychecks to reflect these withholdings.


Employers must remit the deductions to the CT Paid Leave Authority quarterly. Failure to remit timely contributions may result in interest and penalties.


Communicate with your workers

Employers are required by law to provide the Notice of Employee Rights Under CT FMLA and CT Paid Leave upon initial hire and annually thereafter.

Employers must also communicate with CT Paid Leave to verify their workers' employment status and benefits when a worker applies for CT Paid Leave.

The replacement employee may be eligible for unemployment compensation if he or she otherwise meets all of the criteria for this benefit. The Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Act creates a “non-charge” against an employer's unemployment tax experience rate, allowing an employer to lay off a temporary employee filling the job of an employee on leave without increasing the employer's unemployment taxes.
