Connecticut has released quite a few mandatory posting requirements that must be updated for a compliant 2018 Connecticut labor law poster. Many of the changes took place towards the end of 2017, and should already be displayed by the time the new year rolls around. All the 2018 Connecticut labor posters are free from the Connecticut Department of Labor, including posters from the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities division.
A new addition to the Connecticut Labor poster is the addition of the Pregnancy Discrimination and Accommodation Notice. This Statute informs covered employers that it is illegal to discriminate against pregnant employees, and to provide reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
In October 2017, there were updates to the Connecticut Anti-Discrimination posting, as well as to the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Poster. The Anti-Discrimination notice added veteran status as a group that cannot be discriminated against in the process of employment. The Workers’ Compensation poster included instructions on filing, as well as specifies who needs to post the notice.
Below is a list of posters which can be downloaded for a free 2018 Connecticut labor law poster[i], including the most recent updates:
- Connecticut Minimum Wage
- Connecticut Anti-Discrimination
- Connecticut Pregnancy Discrimination and Accommodation Act
- Connecticut Workers’ Compensation
- Connecticut Sexual Harassment is Illegal
- Connecticut Managed Healthcare
- Connecticut Electronic Monitoring
- Connecticut Employment of Minors
- Connecticut Unemployment Insurance
- Connecticut Paid Sick Leave
- Connecticut Job Safety and Health Protection
Employers should also be sure to include the federal labor posting requirements as well. The Department of Labor poster page includes a full list of relevant posters, all of which are printable for free.
Labor posters should be displayed in a conspicuous location where employees will be able to read their rights, such as the breakroom or lobby. Certain postings such as the Equal Employment Opportunity poster are also recommended for job applicants and potential employees.
[i] Please note that there are certain requirements for different businesses, and this list contains the postings that are applicable for most businesses.
