New Connecticut Law Requires Retail Establishments to Offer Employee Restrooms to Customers with Medical Conditions


Effective October 1, 2009, retail establishments in Connecticut will be required to allow customers with eligible medical conditions access to employee-only restrooms, provided certain conditions are met.

A retail establishment includes any business that is open to the general public for the purpose of selling goods or services, and a restroom is any room that includes a toilet.
