Joint Enforcement Commission on Employee Misclassification (JEC)
Misclassification occurs when an employer incorrectly defines a worker as an "independent contractor" rather than an employee. Although misclassification can happen inadvertently, it is more often used to circumvent the law.
Connecticut has a Joint Enforcement Commission on Employee Misclassification – a collaboration of the Connecticut Department of Labor, Department of Revenue Services, Attorney General, Chief State’s Attorney and the Workers’ Compensation Commission. Any of these Departments can be contacted regarding this issue and their websites should also be viewed for any information. It is important to note that each agency’s jurisdiction should be consulted. Commission members include:
The Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC) administers the workers' compensation laws of the State of Connecticut with the ultimate goal of ensuring that workers injured on the job receive prompt payment of wage loss benefits and appropriate medical treatment. 1 (800) 223-9675
