Updated Connecticut Paid Sick Leave

We have updated the Connecticut Paid Sick Leave provisions to align the advisory notes (the content contained in the “Explain This to Me” section) and the policy content with amendments to the Connecticut law effective January 1, 2015. Specifically, the paid sick leave law was amended to:

  • allow an employer to determine whether it is covered due to having 50 employees on payroll in Connecticut by using the payroll week containing the October 1 date;
  • include radiologic technologists within the law's coverage; and
  • allow accrual of time on any annual basis (i.e., effective January 1, 2015, an employer no longer has to use the traditional calendar year but rather can use any pre-defined 365-day period). NOTE: Until January 1, 2015, it must the traditional calendar year.

The changes are effective January 1, 2015.
