Employees in the state of Connecticut are protected by a range of federal and state laws. Too often, employers break these laws with impunity. If you believe that your employer has violated your rights as an employee, you may be able to file a legal claim against them.
Many people are unaware of the full scope of protections available to them under the law, which can make it hard to stand up for their rights. They may also be afraid to speak up, worried about the possibility of retaliation, or have difficulty finding a new job. A skilled Connecticut employment law attorney can work with you to achieve justice if you have been treated unfairly or illegally by your prospective, current, or former employer.

Types of Cases We Handle
Connecticut is an at-will employment state, which means that for most people, your company can fire you for any reason or no reason at all – as long as it isn’t illegal. Under Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Connecticut’s Human Rights Law, both job candidates and employees are protected from discrimination and harassment on the basis of their membership in a protected class, including:
- National Origin
- Age (over 40)
- Learning disability
- Marital status
- Intellectual disability
- Mental disability
- Physical disability
- Gender identity or expression
- Sexual orientation
- Status as a veteran
If you believe that you have been discriminated against or harassed for one or more of these reasons, we may be able to file a claim against your employer for:
- Wrongful termination
- Employment discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Sexual assault
We also represent individuals on other types of employment law matters, including wage and hour claims and whistleblower lawsuits.
Each case starts with a free initial consultation, where we will listen to your story and offer you advice on your legal rights and options for pursuing a claim. If you choose to hire our law firm, we will fight for your rights and help you get the best possible outcome.
