WETHERSFIELD, Keeping up-to-date with wage and hour regulations can prove to be a challenging task. Maintaining accurate employee records, properly scheduling meal and break periods, and knowing which employees are exempt, can often seem daunting.

  • Wage and hour investigations: How to maintain accurate records. Are you prepared for an audit?
  • Making the right decision: Is that employee exempt or nonexempt?
  • Meals and break periods
  • Connecticut’s wage payment laws – timing, frequency, final paychecks, deductions, hiring agreements and penalties for violation
