CBA Labor and Employment Law Committee Held Meeting on Paid Leave Trends

Our Firm had the pleasure of hosting attorneys from Eastern Connecticut on January 15th for the Connecticut Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section meeting. The meeting was held in Stamford but attorneys were able to attend remotely at our office or at another firm’s office in Hartford.

Deborah DeHart Cannavino, of Epstein Becker Green, led a discussion on trends in paid leave, including parental, caregiver, and sick leave, as well as related legislation in Connecticut and elsewhere.

Attorneys in attendance earned Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MLCE) credits for 2019. According to the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, the MCLE requirements ensure lawyers keep current with constantly evolving substantive and procedural law. Continuing education allows attorneys to maintain the knowledge and skill necessary to practice in Connecticut effectively and fulfill their professional responsibilities.
