Connecticut Employment Laws You Didn’t Know Existed- 
Employment Terms You Need To Put In Writing

Many employers are unaware of a Connecticut employment law essentially requiring offer letters.  Employers must, at the time of hiring, advise employees as to his her rate of pay, hours of employment, and wage payment schedule.  The statute also requires employers to make available policies and practices related to wages, vacation pay, sick leave, health and welfare benefits, and comparable matters.  This can be done in writing or through posted notices.  If these policies change, employees must be notified in writing or through posted notices.

What's your Geek Speak?

I Don't Understand You! Developing Communications Clarity.

Geeks are computer geniuses who speak techno-babble that is incomprehensible to the rest of us. And they get younger every day. My current go-to tech geek is 11.

The times, they are a changin’. Dictionaries struggle to keep up with the continuous changes to the definition of a word that started out meaning “a crazy carny who bites the heads off chickens”. As technology advanced the word became associated with those who “engage in or discuss computer-related tasks obsessively or with great attention to technical detail”. More recent definitions have gone beyond the tech geek to “a person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about a specific subject”.
