The Office of Legislative Research has released their "OLR Major Issues" document, which is designed the identify and provide brief descriptions of important issues that the Connecticut General Assembly is likely to address in the upcoming legislative session.
In the Labor and Employment area, the areas that the report highlights should be of no surprise to readers of the blog. They are as follows:
- Unemployment Compensation Fund Solvency
- Paid Sick Leave
- Alternatives to Existing Binding Arbitration Policy for Municipalities and School Districts
- Changes to Prevailing Wage Laws and the Burdens They Place on Towns
Of course, this report doesn’t mean that OTHER issues won’t be brought up again, but as I said before, paid sick leave is very likely coming around again. With a Governor-Elect who supports the measure, it’s now not a question of "if", but "when".
