New Amendment to Mandatory Connecticut Unemployment Form
The Connecticut Department of Labor just amended the mandatory form every employer must deliver to its employees when they separate from the Company – regardless of the reason. The key difference is when listing the reason for separation, a new category was added – Leave of Absence. Given the number of employers who are using furloughs – a forced leave of absence with a promise of a return to work – this change is key and likely a reaction to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The new form and the entire unemployment packet can be found here.
