The Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious creed, age, sex, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, ancestry, present or past history of mental disability, intellectual disability, learning disability or physical disability, including, but not limited to, blindness . It covers all employers of three or more workers (CT Gen. Stat. Sec. 46a-60, Sec. 46a-81c). Employers are also prohibited from taking any form of reprisal against employees who file discrimination complaints.
There is no specific affirmative action provision covering private employers.
