    Accommodation and Leave Best Practices


    8:30 AM – 9:00 AM - Virtual Coffee Klatch!
    Let us buy you a coffee!  We've set aside this time prior to the presentation to allow you to get to  know (or reacquaint yourself with) your fellow HR colleagues.  What are you doing with regard to the vaccine mandate, bringing workers back, or keeping them remote?  How are you handling the many new October 1st regulations?  Do you think  our chapter should begin in-person meetings again?  What's on your mind?  Let's interact and spend some time together!  (Register by October 18 to receive your coffee voucher).

    9:00 AM – 10:00 AM – Presentation
    Our speaker will provide strategies and considerations for Connecticut employers managing employee leaves of absences, both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.  Attendees will learn the various laws and regulations governing employee leaves, including the impact of forthcoming changes occasioned by the Connecticut Paid Family and Medical Leave Act.

    •    Review laws and regulations that may require employers to provide leaves of absences to employees.
    •    Discuss the Connecticut Paid Family and Medical Leave Act, including amendments to the Connecticut Family & Medical Leave Act, as well as wage replacement benefits available through the Connecticut Paid Leave Authority.
    •    Discuss managing COVID-19 related leaves of absences.
    •    Discuss managing leaves of absences in a remote working environment.
