CT: Minimum Wage Increase October 1

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has signed legislation raising Connecticut’s minimum wage to $11 per hour effective October 1, 2019.

According to CBIA, employers must note the following:

“You may voluntarily choose to pay the new higher rate for all hours worked that week, but your legal obligation is to use the minimum rate applicable at the time the work was performed. That means hours worked before October 1 must be paid at no less than $10.10 per hour and hours worked October 1 and thereafter must be paid at no less than $11.00 per hour.”
