While many of us love our jobs, every now and then a dispute can arise in the workplace that requires us to turn to Connecticut’s employment laws for help or clarification. These statutes define the Nutmeg State’s minimum wage, overtime pay, and pay day requirements, and regulate more complicated scenarios like union membership and organization. The state can also provide legal protections for “whistleblowers” (employees who discover and report bad behavior by their employers) and ensure that employees aren't fired or otherwise retaliated against. Connecticut even has laws that determine which holidays you can get off work and if you’re entitled to holiday pay.
