Description

Employee protections; candidacy for or service in the General Assembly. Prohibits an employer from discharging, disciplining, threatening, discriminating against, or penalizing an employee, or taking other retaliatory action regarding an employee's compensation, terms, conditions, location, or privileges of employment, because the employee is a candidate for the General Assembly or serves as a member of the General Assembly. The bill provides that a person who alleges a violation of this prohibition may bring a civil action seeking injunctive relief, reinstatement, and compensation for lost wages, benefits, and other remuneration.
