Medical or Recreational Marijuana Laws

Currently, Connecticut allows the use and possession of marijuana by individuals for medical purposes by qualifying patients who have a recommendation from a doctor to use Medical Marijuana. Adults 21 and older in Connecticut may use and possess Recreational Marijuana up to 1½ ounces (and up to 5 ounces in a locked container in their home or in their car’s glove box or trunk). The new legislation will also expunge past convictions for marijuana possession.

Salary History Bans

Currently, Connecticut employers are prohibited from asking (directly or through a third party) about a prospective employee’s wage and Salary History unless the prospective employee volunteers the information. Employers are not prohibited from inquiring about other elements of a prospective employee’s compensation structure, as long as such employer does not inquire about the value of the elements of such compensation structure.
