"An Employer's Guide to CT's new Paid Family Leave Program (PFMLA)"

Recently, Governor Lamont announced the launch of a new website – www.CTPaidLeave.org – the goal of which is helping Connecticut businesses and residents to understand their roles, rights, and responsibilities based on the Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFMLA).

The Connecticut Paid Leave program is set to begin on January 1, 2021, making the new website a vital tool for all impacted employees, employers, sole proprietors and self-employed individuals to understand their roles and responsibilities. Paid Leave program benefits become accessible to qualified employees beginning on January 1, 2022.

The new website serves as more than just an informational guide to the new PFMLA legislation, but also provides many of the tools needed by employers, employees, third-party administrators and healthcare professionals to begin preparing for and implementing the changes necessitated by this new program.

Some of these tools include:

· Downloadable fact sheets, video guides and timelines specific to employer, employee and sole proprietor/self-employed individuals' needs.

· An estimator tool to help employees anticipate payroll deductions. (The program is funded through payroll deductions)

· Resources for sole proprietors and self-employed individuals interested in opting in to the program.

· Resources for employers interested in applying for an exemption from the program.

· Resources specific to all business types on how to register with the CT Paid Leave Authority.

· Frequently Asked Questions that are updated periodically to include the most common inquiries as this new program is rolled out.

I hope that you find this website's information to be helpful to you, yours family, and your business.

Wallingford Police Department to Conduct Their Annual School Supplies Drive

On Saturday, September 12, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., the Wallingford Police Department, Community Police Division will again sponsor its yearly School Supplies Drive.
COVID-19 has caused a greater need for supplies due to the fact that as a safety precaution, these items may not be shared between students.

As a result, this year, there is a special request for masks and calculators, in addition to standard supplies such as backpacks, pens, pencils and crayons, rulers, glue sticks, paper and notebooks.

Officers will be wearing face masks and stationed in the rear parking lot of the police department located at 135 North Main Street to accept donations. Those who wish to donate will not need to leave their vehicles and can exit our parking lot onto Center Street.

Please stay safe and healthy as we work together through these difficult times.

ENDORSED BY THE INDEPENDENT PARTY OF CT!!!

I'm excited to announce that, as in previous years, I have received the endorsement of The Independent Party of Connecticut, CT's 3rd-Largest Political Party. This group has a long history of endorsing independent-minded people, and my voting record certainly supports that.To me, it is not about whether it is their bill, or our bill, it is more about if it is a good bill, or a bad bill. Thank you to the Independent Party of CT for supporting me in that thought process. #NovemberElection #CheshireCT #WallingfordCT #Fishbein4CT

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE DEPT. OF LABOR RE: PEUC FILERS

Please be advised that letters are going out this Monday (6/29/2020) to some Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) filers who are close to exhausting their federal benefits. (That is the federal program which allowed for an extension of 13 weeks to those that had already exhausted their traditional benefits.) The letters will indicate that those filers should wait until end of PEUC federal payments to apply for possible state extended benefits so as to prevent overlap, and facilitate smooth transition. (More info is on the DOL release here:  DOL Release Re: PEUC Filers - 6/25/2020
