Whether it’s due to stall tactics by some Republicans last night, as they suggested in an article in the Courant this morning, or simply other things on the agenda, several bills that would have had a major impact on employers were not passed in the closing hours of the legislative session last night.
Among the bills that were pending and that expired when the session ended: Paid Sick Leave bill (H.B. 6187), the so-called Captive Audience prohibition bill, and a bill that would ban the use of credit reports for employment decisions.
Still, there were enough other bills that passed in the last few weeks that employers will need to update their policies and procedures, particularly as they pertain to state FMLA and to discrimination.
Once the dust settles, I’ll provide a recap. And look for details coming a little bit later about a webinar next week on the legislative session too and what employers need to know.
