The General Law Committee is hearing three bills at its upcoming public hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 3, that could put more restrictions on employers in Connecticut.

The proposals (SB 66, SB 68, HB 5296) ban certain employers from using their customers’ Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses, and even restrict how businesses contact their potential customers.   

Protecting consumer information is a top priority, and in fact, Connecticut businesses don’t want to put their customer’s information at risk.

Legislation that imposes additional mandates on employers and makes it more difficult to do business in Connecticut is a significant concern.

Right now, the bills are in proposed form, which means they are in the beginning stages of their wording.
