2022 Legislative Update: Annual Review of Legal Developments Affecting the Workplace
Time & Location
Sep 22, 2022, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM
About the Event
Unemployment Fraud produced through Connecticut’s updated unemployment compensation website, Unions stepping up organizing while Connecticut bans “captive audience” meetings, insurance companies wanting sky high increases as the ACA lowers the definition of affordability, an expansion of the State’s anti-discrimination law affecting every employer in Connecticut, and a shrinking labor market in the midst of a significant increase and inflation will pose significant challenges for Connecticut employers in the coming year.
In this highly concentrated session, we will bring employers up to date. We’ll cover the laws enacted and those that failed in the 2021 session of the Connecticut General Assembly; we will bring you up to date on the state’s FMLA regs and the U.S. DOL’s plans to increase the FLSA salary test. Among the topics we will review are:
· CT DOL’s ReEmployCT website and the Rise in Fraudulent Unemployment Claims;
· The 2022 Legislative Session: What Passed-What Didn’t;
· Hiring People: Looking at the Connecticut Labor Market---Trends in Numbers and Wage Rates;
· The Connecticut Health Insurance Rate Proposals and the ACA’s lowering of “Affordability;”
· Discrimination: Domestic Violence Discrimination, Rights, Entitlements, and Your Employee Handbook;
