Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Under CT law Section 31-71c, an employer must issue a final paycheck, no later than the following business day if you were terminated. Thus, if they have not done so, then they are in violation of CT's wage hour laws.
You may want to consider just writing a formal demand letter to your former supervisor to get your money. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for a demand letter (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation. You may also want to file wage hour claim with the CT dept. of labor as well by clicking here.
Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.
