CMC Updates

By Allen Nadeau
Committee representative for NESMA

The Legislative session has been very busy. There are bills being discussed that seem to be positive for businesses in Connecticut, and those that are not. Here are a few of the bills that should receive your attention. Please write to your representative and senators to solicit their support.

In some form one of these three bills, HB5166, SB7, or SB12 are expected to pass. Each addresses the same issue, sick time, and one is already supported by the governor. There has been tremendous opposition from businesses.

HB5166, SB7, and SB12: 40 hours sick pay for every worker, regardless of company size or industry. Paid for by the employer. Accrued at 1-hour sick time per 30 hours worked. Hours can carry over to the following year, but only 40 hours are allowed per year. Part-time employees are eligible. Employers cannot ask for a doctor’s note. Business must retain records for three years.

SB361: An Act Concerning The Impermissible Use Of Nondisclosure Agreements In The Workplace. 

SB430: An Act Authorizing Bonds Of The State For An Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship And Community Robotics Center. 

HB5266: An Act Amending The Time To Protest Benefit Charges On An Employer’s Unemployment Insurance Quarterly Statement. 

HB5501: An Act Concerning A Study Of Manufacturing Issues In The State. 

HB5503: An Act Concerning A Study Of Workforce Shortages, Workforce Development And Training Availability. 

HB 5501: An Act Concerning A STUDY OF MANUFACTURING ISSUES IN THE STATE

Please write or email those representing where you live and work.
