If using an ADI micorcontroller in a LFCSP package, how do I connect the exposed paddle on the underside of the package on my PCB?

I am using the ADuC7020 in its LFCSP package and I am wondering whether or not the exposed paddle underneath the part should be connected to GND on my PCB?

In fact many ADI micorcontrollers come in LFCSP packages, how should the ground paddle be handled on all of these parts?
