Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Connecticut

Workers deserve more rights

We live in a culture where corporations simply have too much power. Currently, they can:

  • Ask us to sign away our rights
  • Push us out of our jobs for any reason or no reason
  • Work while grieving a loved one
  • Check our credit in the hiring process
  • Fail to conduct investigations for reports of sexual harassment
  • Discriminate against those suffering from domestic violence
  • Retaliate against injured workers
  • Make it difficult for us to leave toxic workplaces when our healthcare is tied to our jobs
  • Silence us when we've been abused
  • Pay some workers below minimum wage
  • Not grant sufficient sick leave amid COVID-19
  • Conduct abusive scheduling practices
  • Avoid accountability for discrimination through wages and promotions
  • Steal wages
  • Block public employees from striking
  • Ask about our desired salary ranges, which has a discriminatory impact
  • Verbally abuse and sabotage workers with zero accountability

We can change this toxic culture for workers through by passing these bills into law:

Anti-discrimination retaliation, SB420
This bill calls for a state-level policy that prohibits managerial or supervisory authorities from retaliating or discriminating against an employee who complains about discrimination.

Data on Connecticut employees, SB316
This bill will require the Labor Department to conduct a study regarding various topics related to Connecticut workers including paid sick day expansion and expanding workers' compensation coverage for post-traumatic stress injuries for all employees.

Wage theft, SB418
This bill will allow the Labor Commissioner to issue fines and citations to contractors and subcontractors who violate the state's prevailing wage laws; and permit the Attorney General to commence a civil action against a contractor or subcontractor who repeatedly violates the state's prevailing wage laws.
