Employers in Connecticut should be familiar with the “Discrimination is Illegal” poster put out by the CHRO that should put up on bulletin boards in a common area.

With new laws taking effect, October 1, 2011, the agency has released a new poster for printout and posting. The most significant change to the poster is the addition of “gender identity” to the list of protected characteristics.  The poster is also available in Spanish.

Note: Numerous commercial companies have products that combine the workplace posters into one big sheet.  That may work for some employers (and removes the guesswork), but you can also use the posters from the state for free.
