Labor & Employment in Connecticut
If you're trying to negotiate a job-related contract with your employer, or if you think your company's employment practices break the law, don't try to resolve the problem yourself. A Connecticut labor and employment attorney can explain your legal options and help you find a solution.
Labor and employment laws can be complicated and confusing. There are thousands of laws that govern everything from minimum wage to workers' compensation. In many instances, there are very specific steps that must be taken to resolve disputes.
For example, if your Connecticut unemployment claim is denied you cannot immediately sue your former employer in court. Instead, you'll need to file an appeal with the Connecticut Department of Labor.
A Connecticut labor and employment lawyer can help you understand the specific process for resolving the issue with your employer.

- What are my legal options?
