Compliance and Enforcement

The State of Connecticut Labor Laws and Regulations (31-374 et seq) authorizes CONN-OSHA to conduct workplace inspections to determine whether public employers are complying with standards issued by the Connecticut Department of Labor for safe and healthful workplaces. The inspections are normally conducted without advance notice. In fact, alerting an employer without proper authorization in advance of an inspection can bring a fine up to $1000.00 and/or a 6-month jail term.
