STATE EMPLOYEES AND VIOLENCE AND BULLYING IN THE WORKPLACE: Connecticut's Bill Gets Grounded
On March 26, the Gov't Administrations and Elections Committee met to
consider the HB 5285. The bill passed the Labor Committee unanimously
and was sent to the GAE Committee for further action.
HB 5285 AAC STATE EMPLOYEES AND VIOLENCE AND BULLYING IN THE WORKPLACE
was on GAE’s agenda for their final meeting, but it along with 3 other
bills were not acted on. They didn’t run out of time. The chairs just
didn’t call it, which means that it is dead at this time. It is
probably unlikely to be amended to another bill.
The Chairs of GAE need to hear from us. They let this die.
Their office is
Government Administrations and Elections Committee
Room 2200, Legislative Office Building
Hartford, CT 06106
S14 - Slossberg, Gayle S. Co-Chair Slossb...@senatedems.ct.gov
036 - Spallone, James Field Co-Chair James.Spall...@cga.ct.gov
S12 - Meyer, Edward Vice Chair
030 - Aresimowicz, Joe
If we can let the legislators
know that we are unhappy, we may see it pass next year.
Thanks again for all your activities and help in trying to end
legalized harassment and abusive conduct in the workplace.
