Connecticut Family and Medical Leave Programs

What is the Update?

CT Paid Leave
As a reminder regarding the CT Paid Leave (CT PL) benefit, eligible employees can receive up to 95% of their average weekly wage for family and medical leave up to 12 weeks (Up to 2 additional weeks for incapacity during pregnancy), to a maximum weekly benefit. The maximum weekly benefit was $780 beginning January 1, 2022, increased to $840 on July 1, 2022, and lastly, the maximum increased again to $900 on June 1, 2023.

Update (11/28/23, Effective 01/01/24): The Connecticut Paid Leave Board of Directors recently voted for the CTPL contribution rate to remain the same in 2024 at 0.5%. In addition to this, the CTPL weekly benefit will increase to $941.40 as of January 1, 2024. The employee notice has not changed as a result of these updates and is unlikely to change as it does not contain contribution information, however, Larkin will keep you updated on if or when there is an update.
