Buried at the end of the typical contract with Connecticut is the following: "Employer understands that, as Contractor, it must comply with the Service Worker Statute, Sec. 31-57f of the Connecticut General Statutes as revised."

Most contracts, however, do not explain what the Service Worker Statute is or how employers are affected by it. Important to employers is that Sec. 31-57f, commonly known as the Service Contract Act (SCA), is a legal mandate for specific wage and benefit rates the employer must pay its workers. Failure to recognize and follow the SCA can lead to significant legal consequences.
