AARP Connecticut has submitted testimony to the General Assembly's Labor Committee in support of House Bill 5283, AN ACT CONCERNING EXPANSION OF FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE. AARP supports the bill and efforts at both the state and federal level that increase paid leave and cover more workers for longer periods of time so that employees can both attend to their own health needs and care for loved ones. H.B. 5283 expands the family members covered by the law so that an employee may use Family and Medical Leave to care for a parent-in-law, sibling, grandparent or grandchild.
