Connecticut Department of Labor Issues Stop Work Orders to 16 Companies


Wethersfield, CT ( – The Connecticut Department of Labor's Division of Wage and Workplace Standards issued Stop Work orders to 16 companies working at construction project sites in Preston, East Haven, Wallingford, Norwich and Danbury during the period of Oct. 1 to 23, State Labor Commissioner Sharon Palmer announced today.

Stop Work orders are levied against companies that misclassify workers as independent contractors with the intent of avoiding their obligations under federal and state employment laws covering such matters as workers' compensation, unemployment taxes and payroll reporting. Stop Work orders result in the halting of all activity at a cited company's worksite, as well as a $300 civil penalty for each day the company does not carry workers' compensation coverage as required by law.
