Employment Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Oumano, Emily


AC44244 - Sitar v. Syferlock Technology Corp. (“The plaintiffs, Paul Sitar and Joseph Stage, appeal from the judgment of the trial court, following a court trial, insofar as the court concluded that they were not entitled to double damages and attorney's fees and declined to award prejudgment interest on the amounts awarded to them. On appeal, the plaintiffs claim that the trial court (1) erred in finding that there was no bad faith, arbitrariness, or unreasonableness on the part of the defendant, Syferlock Technology Corporation, to support an award of double damages and attorney's fees with respect to the plaintiffs' claims for failure to pay wages pursuant to General Statutes § 31-72,and (2) abused its discretion in not awarding prejudgment interest pursuant to General Statutes § 37-3a (a). We conclude that the record is inadequate for our review, and, accordingly, we decline to review the plaintiffs' claims and, thus, affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
