Connecticut law dictates that all employees in the state must be paid on a weekly or biweekly pay basis. However, a waiver can be requested from the Department of Labor that allows an employer to pay employees on a semi-monthly or monthly payroll schedule.
Connecticut Minimum Wage
Connecticut employers can find the most up-to-date minimum wage requirements on the Connecticut Department of Labor website.
