  • CT Labor Law and Minimum Shift Requirements Connecticut

    So, Sec. 31-62-D2 (d) states:
    In instances of regularly scheduled
    employment of less than four hours as
    mutually agreed in writing between employer
    and employee, and approved by the Labor
    Department, this provision may be waived
    provided the minimum daily pay in every
    instance shall be at least twice the applicable
    minimum hourly rate.


    Our employer has recently made it very clear that we cannot schedule part-time associates for less than four hours and even if they arrive late or wish to leave early, they must work for at least four hours.

    MY QUESTION IS:
    Does this apply to full-time employees under the same employer?

    The statute you quoted is in regard to the "reporting time pay" law in Ct. for employees in the mercantile trade and, yes, does include full-time employees.

    Mercantile trade - An employee, who by request or permission of the employer, reports for duty on any day whether or not assigned to actual work shall be compensated for a minimum of four hours earnings at his regular
    rate. In instances of regularly scheduled employment of less than four hours as mutually agreed in writing between employer and employee, and approved by the Labor Department, this provision may be waived provided the minimum daily pay in every instance shall be at least twice the applicable minimum hourly rate.
    (“Employee” means a person employed or permitted to work in any occupation in the mercantile trade.)

      As an addition to my post above, the employer can schedule part-time & full-time employees for whatever hrs. they wish (minus a legally binding employment contract to the contrary).

      (There's a limit on max. hrs. for minors & some safety occupations - ie long haul trucker, airline pilot, just to mention it.)
