Rep. Kim Rose – Anti-Age Discrimination Bill Heads To The House

Milford, Connecticut – State Representative Kim Rose (D-Milford) applauded a bill she authored to discourage age discrimination on employment applications by eliminating the need to indicate date of birth or age.

“Although it is current law that an employer cannot discriminate in hiring and other terms of employment based on a person’s age, this change would allow someone applying to not indicate that on an application,” Rep. Rose said. “That way, an employer may review qualifications without age having any influence on the decision making process.”

House Bill #6206, An Act Concerning Age Discrimination In Hiring Practices, prohibits, except in cases of a bona fide occupational qualification or need, an employer or an employer’s agent from requesting or requiring a prospective employee’s date of birth or age on an initial employment application. A person can file a complaint with the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities that has the authority to investigate and pursue temporary or permanent relief in court.

Rep. Rose is serving her fourth legislative term. She is co-chair of the Women’s Caucus, House vice chair of the legislature’s Housing Committee, Assistant Majority Whip and a member of the Internship and Veterans Affairs Committees.
