Have you heard???
The Connecticut FMLA program begins enrolling on November 23, 2020.
If you have AT LEAST one employee, this is a requirement, and you need to understand your rules for compliance.
And did you know???
As a sole proprietor/self-employed business owner, you are ALSO eligible to enroll!
The required deduction for this is ½ of 1% of your (your employee’s) income. This will cover:
- Birth of a child
- Adoption/foster placement of a child
- Care for a seriously ill family member
- Your own illness
- Serving as an organ or bone marrow donor
- Domestic violence
- Some military-related family issues
Enrollment begins November 23, 2020 and payments begin in January 2021.
You are eligible to begin utilizing the benefit a year later. There are some rules and regulations, of course.
