Bill summary

Senate amendment to the 3rd edition makes the following changes.

Section 13.

Deletes the proposed changes to GS 95-242, which no longer required the Commissioner of Labor (Commissioner) to issue a right to sue letter that enables an employee to bring a civil action under GS 95-243 upon determining there is no reasonable cause to believe a complaint alleging that the employer discriminated or retaliated against the employee for engaging in the protected activities of GS 95-241, in violation of GS 95-241, is true. Instead adds that the right to sue letter must state that the Commissioner has investigated the complaint and concluded that there is not reasonable cause to believe the allegation is true. Also adds that a right to sue letter issued by the Commissioner when the Commissioner has concluded that there is not reasonable cause to believe the allegation is true may be used as evidence in a subsequent proceeding.
