There have been several noteworthy updates related to existing, recently enacted Connecticut employment laws, including the state's wage range disclosure law and the legalized use of marijuana. Although these laws have been in effect since last year, employers should be aware of updated guidance.

In addition, Connecticut recently enacted several laws that will affect employers of all sizes in Connecticut. These new laws include:      

  • A law allowing employees to walk out of any employer-sponsored meeting if the employee subjectively believes the employer is discussing political matters, including legislation or regulations that impact business operations or employer involvement in civic or community events
  • A law expanding voting leave requirements
  • A law expanding Connecticut's Human Rights and Opportunities Act to include certain protections for victims of family violence

During the recent legislative session, there were also several bills that did not pass, but that employers should be aware of, as they likely will be revived in subsequent legislative sessions. Among these bills are:

  • A bill that would allow the deputization of nonprofits and unions to sue employers on behalf of employees that had agreed to settle disputes by arbitration
  • A bill that would permit striking employees to collect unemployment benefits after two weeks
  • A bill that would invalidate noncompete agreements for certain employee groups
  • A bill that would require employers in the retail, restaurant or hospitality industries to provide 14 days' notice to employees of their work schedules
  • A bill that would expand the existing paid sick leave law

During this webinar, we will discuss noteworthy enforcement updates to existing legislation. In addition, we will discuss the above newly enacted laws and provide guidance on implementation of these laws in the workplace. Finally, we will discuss those bills that did not pass and their potential future implications for employers.​​
