Connecticut is an at-will employment state, and what this means is that the connection between employer and employee is very open. At any point, an employer can fire an employee for any reason; and, likewise, an employee can end their employment with a company for any reason. There are exceptions to at-will employment laws, creating chances for employees or employers to seek legal help and action if they are wronged during the termination of employment.
