This week the House and Senate will be voting on two bills,  SB 1310 (D–McClellan) and HB 2032 (D-Gooditis), that could result in parents being sued for "sex discrimination" if they hire a woman over a man to take care of their young children as a babysitter or nanny in the home without them being there, or for “religious discrimination” if they specifically hire someone of their own faith as an in-home tutor, and even be subjected to in-home visits from the Health Department to conduct an inspection of the premises!

SB 1310 and HB 2032 create a new category of employee called a “domestic worker,” which includes anyone who is paid for the “performance of services of a household nature performed in or about a private home.” This would include: home companions, babysitters (other than family members, friends, or neighbors), a nanny to care for one’s children, tutors, in-home nurses, caretakers, home health aides, personal care aides, etc.

Worse yet, it would authorize the Health Department “to enter without delay” the home/premises and “to inspect, investigate, and take samples” at that home and “all pertinent conditions, structures… and materials therein, and to question privately any such employer, owner, operator, agent, or employee.”

Under this bill, anyone who hires just one person, even if it’s part-time (a few hours a week), to babysit their child or provide in-home tutoring, would be treated as an employer and open them up to civil lawsuits under the Human Rights Act from the Attorney General and/or disgruntled applicants.

The Left desperately wants to invade your home and tell you who and for what reasons you can hire someone regarding some of the most sensitive personal matters within your own home, such as caring for your children.  This week please urge your legislator to respect your privacy and oppose these dangerous bills!
