Honorable Joseph M. Souki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Eighth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2015
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 683 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Authorize the Executive Director of the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission to dismiss a discrimination complaint and issue a notice to the complainant of the right to sue, after a determination of reasonable cause of discrimination is made and conciliation fails; and
(2) Provide that the Executive Director's determination that a complaint is to be dismissed and a notice of right to sue issued is not subject to reconsideration by the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission or judicial review.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 683 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
