UBS Realty Inv’rs, LLC, 319 Conn. 175 (2015) along with recent decisions and new legislation addressing the meaning of employer discipline for purposes of the statute.  Zach’s article offers valuable insight to employers and in-house counsel on the scope of Section 31-51q’s application to Connecticut employers.
