Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.
Author: Elizabeth Acee, LeClairRyan
- Harassment Claims in Connecticut are governed by the Connecticut Fair Employment and Practices Act (CFEPA). See Harassment Under the Connecticut Fair Employment and Practices Act.
- Connecticut's employment laws governing harassment are generally coextensive with Title Vll and therefore Connecticut courts look to federal law for guidance; however, a greater number of people are statutorily protected from harassment in Connecticut. See Harassment Under the Connecticut Fair Employment and Practices Act.
- Connecticut requires employers to post harassment notices in the workplace and provide training to employees. See Sexual Harassment Training and Notice Requirements.
