As Amended by House "A" (LCO 6157)

House Calendar No.: 78


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill alters the defenses available to employers in wage discrimination lawsuits and repeals a provision specifying that human rights law does not supersede labor law on gender wage discrimination matters. This does not result in any fiscal impact to the state or municipalities.

House “A” strikes the original bill and makes various changes to wage discrimination statutes and has no fiscal impact.
