OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill, which prohibits employers from requiring employees to attend certain meetings and allows any employee who was discharged, disciplined, or otherwise penalized in violation of the bill to bring a civil action before the court, does not result in a fiscal impact. The court system disposes of over 400,000 cases annually and the number of cases is not anticipated to be great enough to need additional resources.
