  • Connecticut has its own version of the federal WARN Act, which imposes additional duties and restrictions on certain employers who plan or conduct layoffs, reductions in force and plant closings. See The Connecticut WARN Act.
  • Connecticut employees who report incidents of unlawful workplace conduct or fraud to public authorities are protected from retaliation, but are also limited to certain remedies. See Connecticut Retaliation Provisions.
  • Connecticut employers who perform investigations prior to terminating employees are generally protected from claims stemming from the investigation itself. See Conducting Investigations Prior to Termination.
