Connecticut Employment Law Blog



This relatively new blog has at least three recent posts of interest, right off the bat:

* A not very well known Connecticut law provides that privately employed persons who quit to assume elected public office must be taken back by their employers afterward, with benefits and seniority accumulated for the time off. Nice deal!

* Describing new employees as "probationary" might make it a jury question whether some sort of permanent tenure or right to performance reviews before firing had been promised to those who make it past that stage, according to a federal court interpreting Connecticut law.

* If you complain to your employer about discrimination, and then lose your job a year later, even a relatively liberal federal judge says you're not just entitled to establish a claim for retaliation -- you actually have to offer, like, evidence.
