As discussed in our previous posts, here and here, Connecticut’s new paid sick leave law went into effect on January 1, 2012.  Among its many requirements is an obligation for employers to provide adequate notice of the law to employees.  Most employers likely satisfy this requirement by displaying the notice poster created by the Department of Labor. 

Though broader issues concerning compliance continue to arise, employers should take care to observe the seemingly minor points of the law, including the requirement to display posters in English and Spanish.  The law imposes this requirement on all employers subject to the law, irrespective of the composition of their work force.

The English and Spanish posters are available on the DOL website.
