Back in March, it looked like the State legislature was going to tackle some big issues in labor and employment. (See previous blog here) The regular session will end on June 5. What happened to all those proposals?
Well, the “Time’s Up” legislation also passed the Connecticut Senate by an overwhelming margin and is headed to the House. Among the various provisions of this bill, there would be a requirement that all workplaces with three or more employees provide sexual harassment instruction to every worker. Currently, employers with 50 or more workers must offer this training to supervisors.
Paid Family and Medical Leave received favorable reports from Labor, Finance and Appropriations Committees and is still hanging on but time is running out for the legislature to act. Other proposals impacting the workplace appear to have lost steam and are unlikely to pass this session.
The Labor and Employment attorneys at Berchem Moses PC can help employers keep up to date on the legislative changes impacting the workplace and maintain compliance with any new obligations.
