According to a new Superior Court decision, Connecticut's Family and Medical Leave Act ("CFMLA"), Conn. Gen. Stat. 31-55kk et. seq., now applies to Connecticut employers with 75 or more employees anywhere in the nation, not just in Connecticut.
On April 21, 2010, the Connecticut Legislature passed House Bill No. 5204, "An Act Implementing the Recommendations of the Joint Enforcement Commission on Worker Misclassification."
Faced with questions about how the new federal Family and Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") regulations would impact employers who are also subject to the Connecticut Family and Medical Leave Act ("CFMLA"), last week the Connecticut Department of Labor ("CT DOL") posted on its website extensive guidance on the issue.
