In Connecticut, two bills are under consideration to prevent employers from discriminating against the unemployed when making hiring decisions. Section 8 of Senate Bill 1 and Senate Bill 79 would govern almost every employer in the state. They would amend Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 46a-60(a)(6) so that employers could not discriminate against the unemployed in job ads and would add Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 46a-60(a)(12) to make refusing to offer someone a job or refusing to refer someone for employment solely because they are unemployed a discriminatory practice.
