Update Applicable to:
All employers in Connecticut.
On September 28, 2021, the Connecticut Department of Labor released a Q&A for House Bill No. 6380 (HB 6380) Public Act 21-30.
What are the details?
In September 2021, the Connecticut Department of Labor released an article “Questions and Answers Regarding Public Act 21-30” – “An Act Concerning the Disclosure of Salary Range for a Vacant Position,” a guidance – not legal advice – for employers to comply with the new law that has been in effect since October 1, 2021.
Public Act 21-30 is a law prohibiting employers from failing or refusing to provide:
- An applicant with the wage range for the position they applied to, either when they request it or before they are offered compensation, whichever is earlier; or
- An employee with the wage range for their position when they are hired, change their position, or when they first request their wage range.
