Summary of Labor and Employment Legislation (2020)

Labor & Employment

The General Assembly passed several bills to support workers in the state.  Legislation included bills to ensure paid sick leave for most workers, expand unemployment, protect against hair discrimination, protect whistleblowers who raise concerns about workplace safety in a public health emergency, and provide support services to workers who experience audible exposure to traumatic events.  In addition, the General Assembly passed bills to support workforce training programs and permit academic credit for work‑related experience.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
