submitting a complaint form to the
Wage and Workplace Standards
The Wage and Workplace Standards Division investigates
alleged violations of labor laws under its jurisdiction
in an employee-employer relationship. We do not possess
statutory authority to investigate complaints such as,
but not limited to, wrongful termination, employment
discrimination, un-employment matter, business expenses,
and tax issues.
Based on provisions outlined in Connecticut General
Statute 52-596 (Actions for payment of remuneration for
employment), investigations of failure to pay wages are
limited to the previous two years from the date of
submission of a complaint to the division.
*We reserve the right to reject anonymous
complaints with respect to wage and working condition
For specific laws we do enforce, please refer to our
complaint forms and our website.

Due to the high volume of
wage and workplace standards claims actively pending
and/or under investigation, we are currently 4-6 months
behind the assignment of new claims. It is also
important to note that we do not possess jurisdiction to
investigate or enforce complaints involving wrongful
termination, hostile work environment or harassment in
