New Data

Those who follow my blog know that I read another blog called the Connecticut Employment Law Blog and on Friday he posted the new data from the CT Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO)… here is the data from the 2015-2016 fiscal year that ended June 30th.
The Commission closed a total of 2793 complaints during the fiscal year. The inclusion of separate statistics for Case Assessment Review and Merit Assessment Review reflects the language changed by statute effective October 1, 2015.
And the total number of cases involving Gender Identity was 14 and they consisted of seven employment discrimination cases, one case of housing discrimination, one “other” case (my guess is that it involved credit since that is the only other protection that we have under PA11-55), and four cases of public accommodation discrimination.

Last year’s numbers were 12 complaints bases on Gender Identity, so this year we are up by two complaints and the year there were only 6 complaints.

And once again Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition got a shout-out in the 2015-2016 Administrative Digest Report to the Governor.
CHRO Attorneys provided training on transgender law at UCONN during the Transgender Lives Conference.
