There are a number of major legislative proposals being considered by the Connecticut General Assembly that could have a significant impact on ALL employers in Connecticut. One such proposal – increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2023 – has been passed by the General Assembly and is expected to be signed by the Governor. Other proposals that are pending:
Enacting Paid FMLA
Legalizing Recreational Marijuana
Strengthening Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Laws
Creating Restrictions on Captive Audience Speeches
Establishing Civil Rights Division of the Attorney General’s Office
In addition, the federal Department of Labor has proposed revisions to the federal overtime rules that would increase the salary for employees to be considered exempt.
It is crucial for both business-owners and human resources professionals to understand what these developments could mean for their businesses and how to prepare for them.
We invite you to join us for a Labor and Employment Seminar on these topics on Thursday, June 20th at the Hilton Garden Inn Wallingford/Meriden. We will discuss what passed (and perhaps what didn’t), and what employers should be doing now to prepare. We will also be joined by State Representative, Stephanie Cummings, who will provide us with an insider’s look at how this legislative session unfolded.
Registration and breakfast will be at 8:30 a.m. and the seminar will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m.
Reminder: this session is included in the Human Resources Roundtable Breakfast Series.
