Sample Notice Available
Connecticut’s Paid Leave Authority in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Labor (CT-DOL) has drafted a sample notice (the “Sample Notice”) for Connecticut employers to use to meet this notice requirement. Brody and Associates has made available a copy of the Sample Notice on our website for your use (click here to download your free copy).
Employers can use the state’s Sample Notice or create their own version. If you have any questions regarding this notice requirement, want help drafting your own, or have general questions on how the Act impacts your business, feel free to give us a call.
