Statement from AG Jepsen on Today's SCOTUS Decisions
Attorney General George Jepsen issued the following statement on today's U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Harris v. Quinn and Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.:
"While my office is reviewing today's Supreme Court decisions – including what effect, if any, that Harris v. Quinn may have on home healthcare workers in the state of Connecticut – both of these decisions, while narrow in their scope, are disappointing.  I am deeply concerned about the impact of the decisions on working families and particularly about the disproportionate impact that the decisions may have on women in our country's workforce.
"My office joined with partner states on amicus briefs in both of these cases, and we will continue to support the rights of workers and the rights of women under our state and federal laws."
