Did you know that Connecticut recognizes civil unions and provides tax benefits for parties to these unions that are not available under federal tax law? That Connecticut employers must pay their employees on a weekly basis?

Connecticut Wage and Hour Laws

Employees covered by Connecticut's minimum wage law must be paid at least $12.00 an hour, and varies for tipped employees.

All employees are covered except those specifically exempt by statute; among those exempt are individuals employed in executive, administrative, or professional capacities and outside salespeople as defined in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

Connecticut Payroll for Employers

Employers covered by Connecticut's wage payment law must pay wages weekly on a regular payday designated in advance. The end of the pay period cannot be more than eight days before the regular payday. If the regular payday falls on a non-work day, payment must be made on the preceding workday. Less frequent paydays of at least once a month are permitted with permission from the Department of Labor.
Connecticut Unemployment:

Taxable Wage Base ($000s):                        15,000

New Employer Rate (% Taxable Wages)    3.0

Employee Tax Rate (% Taxable Wages)     None

Connecticut Income Tax Withholding

Connecticut requires employers to withhold state income tax from employee's wages and remit the amounts withheld to the Department of Revenue Services.

Connecticut recognizes civil unions and provides tax benefits for parties to these unions that are not available under federal tax law. For example, if an employer provides health insurance for employees and their families, the cost of providing coverage for a spouse is nontaxable under both federal and Connecticut law. However, the cost of providing coverage for an employee's civil union partner is nontaxable for Connecticut purposes but is taxable income to the employee for federal withholding purposes.
