June 25, 2019, Governor Lamont signed P.A. 19-25 into law, creating CT Paid Leave. January 1, 2021, employee payroll contributions began. One year later, on January 1, 2022, benefit payments began for qualified applicants approved in December 2021. 

CT Paid Leave is an employee-funded program. Covered employers deduct 0.05% from employees via payroll deduction and remit these contributions to the CT Paid Leave Authority on a quarterly basis. Contributions are capped at the Social Security contribution limit. 

There is a bill SB 1179, which makes some adjustments to CTPL:

  1. Defines “municipality” in CTPL and CT FMLA  
  1. Creates a procedure to enable tribal enterprises/governments to participate in CTPL and CT FMLA  
  1. Clarifies interaction between CTPL and employer provided benefits such as short-term disability policies
