Connecticut Senate approves expansion of State whistle blower law.

The Senate yesterday approve a bill which would expand protection of employees who blow the whistle on corruption.  The Hartford Courant has reported on this bill.  The bill would expand protection to employees of large state contractors who blow the whistle to their employers.  The existing law only protects those who blow the whistle to the state agency involved.  It also adds a provision creating a rebuttable presumption that an change in employment status within three years of the whistle blow is retaliatory.  Of course, this is the most controversial part of the bill and management attorneys aren’t happy about it.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
