Swing Batter Batter – Vetoed by Malloy

Swing You're Out

 

Over the past few weeks, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed 124 bills and vetoed six. He also used his constitutional authority Thursday to veto $22.5 million from the $19.76 billion state budget.

The second bill Malloy vetoed Thursday would have reclassified as independent contractors all coaches and referees working with an organized athletic organization. That would means none would be eligible for unemployment compensation, nor would they be protected by employee wage and hour laws.

The Department of Labor, according to Malloy’s veto message, conducted 95 audits of athletic organizations over the last three years and found 54 percent of coaches and referees were properly classified as independent contractors and 46 percent were misclassified.

Malloy suggested these organizations use the Labor Department to help classify employees and avoid “overly broad exemptions.”

The bill had unanimously passed the Senate and passed the House on a 138-7 vote.
