Connecticut Bill Would Prohibit Auto Glass Shops from Seeking Criminal Histories of Employees

A bill is under review in the Connecticut legislature that aims “to prohibit employers from inquiring about the criminal history of an automotive glass employee or prospective automotive glass employee.”

The bill, titled “An Act Prohibiting Inquiries about the Criminal History of Automotive Glass Workers,” reads as follows:

“Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened: That the general statutes be amended to prohibit employers from inquiring about the criminal history of an automotive glass employee or prospective automotive glass employee.”

The bill, H 7045, was introduced on January 31 and referred to the House Joint Committee on Labor and Public Employees. The bill was introduced by Rep. Peter Tercyak.

At press time, Tercyak’s office had not yet responded to requests for comment on the bill.

    So when you send an employee to a customers home and they get robbed you just say sorry we are not allowed to know the background of an employee. Sounds like a liberal problem to me.
