Tips from Tindall
Holiday, Vacation, Sick or Bereavement Leave



The Connecticut Paid Sick Leave law went into effect on January 1, 2012. The law requires employers with 50 or more employees within Connecticut (excluding most manufacturing establishments and the nationally chartered tax-exempt organizations described in the law), to provide non-exempt "service workers" with paid sick leave that accrues at a rate of one hour per 40 hours worked, to a maximum of 40 hours per calendar year. "Service workers" are employees whose primary duties track those of the 68 federal Standard Occupational Classification System titles listed in the law. The law also prohibits covered employers from retaliating against any employee for requesting or using paid sick leave as provided by the law or in accordance with the employer's own paid sick leave policy, or for filing a complaint against the employer for violation of the law.
An employer not fitting under the above definition is not required to give workers paid holiday, vacation, sick or bereavement leave. Paid leave for holidays, vacation, sickness or bereavement following the death of a close family member are considered "benefits" that may be paid by the business under a policy, written agreement, personal contract, oral agreement, collective bargaining agreement or other form of agreement. There are no state laws requiring that such benefits be given for these smaller employers.
However, if the business agrees to give these benefits and then does not do so, workers may sue the business in a private legal suit in small claims court or through a private attorney to enforce provision of these promised benefits. The employee likely will also report the employer to the Department of Labor, who can conduct an investigation and take disciplinary action against the employer if the employer has not provided the agreed upon compensation.




 Is Your Business Protected from these 5 Holiday Dangers?



The hustle, bustle and excitement from the holiday season leave many opportunities for dishonest individuals to attempt to steal from your business. In this article we are highlighting 5 popular vulnerabilities your business might face throughout the holidays. We are also including precautions that will assist you in making it though the holidays with cheer.




1. Shoplifting - The most common form of theft during the holidays
While shoplifters tend to be a risk throughout the year, they are most active throughout the holiday season
2. Identity Theft - Are your customers safe shopping with you?
  If you employ temporary holiday help, make sure they have rock solid references. A lot of identity thieves are people working within businesses, where they have easy access to the data they are unlawfully attempting to collect.


3. After-hours break-ins and burglaries

Planning to take that well-deserved break between Christmas and New Year's? Because you want your customers to know your holiday schedule, criminals also become aware that you will be away.


4. Shopping Accident Risks


Accidents can happen at any time during the year, surely the risk of accidents increases during special business sales events, parties or busy shopping days like Black Friday or Christmas Eve when businesses are likely to be overrun with eager and sometimes aggressive shoppers.



5. Holiday Scams are on the Rise!


The bad guys realize that many companies enjoy "giving back" during the holiday season.
