The Quiet Revolution in Employment Law

April 25, 2007

Yesterday’s Best Practices are Today’s Necessities

The basic expectations of what employers must do to provide a safe work environment has been changing. Court decisions have gradually turned the law of employment discrimination on its head, even though statutes such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Connecticut's Fair Employment Practices Act have remained essentially unchanged. The procedures adopted as "best practices" have now come to be the minimum requirement. Employers who do not respond to this change, and revise their policies and procedures accordingly, are at substantial risk.
