This program will provide an overview of the relevant law, legal theories, and practical approaches involved in bringing or defending an employment-based discrimination or harassment case before the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO).

You Will Learn
- The most common types of employment-based claims before the CHRO and the relevant law or legal theories
- The practical steps to take in bringing or defending a case not found in the statutes or regulations
