Relief for Employers in CT in the Event of an Employee DUI

posted by Mark Santagata October 13, 2015

The Connecticut legislature has modified Connecticut’s Unemployment Compensation statutes to provide a break to employers who have an employee that becomes eligible for compensation because the employee’s license was lost as a result of a negative off-duty DUI test result. If the employee is suspended or terminated as a result of the “loss” of their operator’s license under such circumstances, and the employee becomes eligible for unemployment compensation as a result, rather than charging the employer’s individual unemployment compensation account, the expense of the benefit paid to the employee will pooled and shared by the entire unemployment compensation system.

If you have questions or concerns about how any of Connecticut’s employment standards apply to you, contact Cacace, Tusch & Santagata.
