Connecticut Application Forms: What you need to know

The Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act does not specifically mention application forms but does prohibit employers from discriminating in recruiting or hiring on the basis of race, color, religious creed, age, sex, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, ancestry, genetic information, sexual orientation, present or past history of mental disability, intellectual disability, learning disability, or physical disability, including, but not limited to, blindness, unless a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) applies (CT Gen. Stat. Sec. 46a-51 et seq. and Sec. 46a-81c). The Act covers employers with three or more employees.
