Duff Appoints Nadine Nevins to Task Force Studying Debarment Procedures and Limitations on the Awarding of State Contracts

HARTFORD, CT - Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) announced that he has appointed Nadine Nevins to the Task Force Studying Debarment Procedures and Limitations on the Awarding of State Contracts.

“Nadine brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this task force,” said Senator Duff. “Throughout her legal career, Nadine has worked to ensure that individuals and workers are treated with fairness and respect. I’m confident that her voice will help to ensure these procedures are evaluated and implemented fairly.”

Ms. Nevins has worked for Connecticut Legal Services, a nonprofit law firm focused in benefits and employment law, since 1985. She began as a Staff Attorney in the Bridgeport office and became Managing Attorney in the Stamford office in 1990. She has been a Managing Attorney in the Bridgeport office since 1995. Throughout her tenure, Ms. Nevins co-created and managed the Stamford Day Laborer Wage Clinic for six years. She is a founding member of the Bridgeport Re-Entry Roundtable and co-creator of a Pardons Clinic in Stamford.

“I ran Connecticut Legal Services’ clinic for low-wage workers for 6 years,” said Ms. Nevins. “Wage theft is a huge problem for many of our clients, especially those in construction. I look forward to working with the Task Force to study ways to ensure that employers who cheat workers out of their wages do not receive lucrative state contracts.”

The Task Force Studying Debarment Procedures and Limitations on the Awarding of State Contracts was established in 2019 by Special Act 19-11.

The task force needs to submit a report on its findings and recommendations to the Labor and Public Employees Committee by February 1, 2020.

Ms. Nevins received her B.A. with honors from the State University of New York at Buffalo. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of Houston Law Center in 1983. She is admitted to practice law in the State of Connecticut and the United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
