•  The prohibition against retaliatory discharge, and the duties that employers and employees owe to each other
•  Connecticut's wage and hour legislation and the litigation that flows from violating the minimum-wage and overtime standards
•  Privacy rights in the workplace, including a timely discussion of an employee’s right to privacy in social media and digital communications

•  And more …
