Connecticut Long-Term Care Health Facilities to Register with New Background Check Portal

Certain health care facilities specializing in long-term care in Connecticut will be required to register with a statewide background check portal beginning February 8, 2016.

Connecticut Limits Use of Background Checks in Employment

A new Connecticut law that took effect on October 1, 2011 (Public Act 11-223) makes it unlawful for most Connecticut employers to require employees or prospective employees to consent to requests for credit reports that contain information about their credit scores, credit account balances, payment history, savings or checking account balances, or account numbers. Connecticut is one of only a few states that have enacted such a law.

Connecticut And Maryland Act To Restrict Employers' Use Of Credit Reports

Two more states – Connecticut and Maryland – have joined Illinois, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii, and several cities, in severely limiting employers' ability to use a job applicant's or current employee's credit history or credit-related information. This affects decisions in hiring or promotions, as well as in determining compensation or other terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. Gov. Dannel Malloy signed the Connecticut law on July 13, 2011. Gov. Martin O'Malley had signed that state's Job Applicant Fairness Act (JAFA) on April 12, 2011. Both laws take effect on October 1, 2011.
