Wage and Hour Law

Employment LawState and federal wage and hour laws can create significant exposure and liability for both small and large Connecticut businesses. OAM’s employment law attorneys provide counsel and guidance on all wage and hour-related issues, including the proper classification of exempt and non-exempt employees, correctly identifying and compensating independent contractors, properly calculating overtime, vacation pay and other fringe benefits, complying with Connecticut’s paid sick leave requirements, providing appropriate break periods, and complying with timekeeping and recordkeeping requirements.

We focus on preventive counseling and compliance auditing, with the goal of avoiding unnecessary and costly litigation. When labor department claims cannot be avoided, however, our attorneys vigorously represent employers against both employee claims and agency investigations.
