capitoldasAs the legislative session continues to roll around, sometimes you can get caught up in bills that have no chance of getting passed.

For example, the General Assembly — as presented structured — will never pass a bill making Connecticut a Right to Work state.

But when the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities makes proposals to the legislature, it’s worth taking a closer look at their proposals.  Why? Because sometimes (though not always), their proposals get adopted.

Two significant proposals, which are being being floated through the Judiciary Committee, not the Labor & Public Employee Committee are as follows:

The CHRO has also proposed language that would impact employers less than the others.

These proposals are still in their formative stages; you won’t find them in the bill record book yet or on the CBIA bill tracker site.

But it’s important for employers and their counsel to review them to understand what is being vetted.

So far, this legislative session is proving to be far busier than was first anticipated.   Stay tuned.
