My understanding was that our town building department concerned itself with safety and zoning rules, not labor issues. This seems more like a union dispute - who complained, and who at Town Hall decided to intervene?
On Tuesday, construction came to a halt after the town issued stop work orders to two companies.
The order cited the contractor, Caetano Construction LLC of Danbury with failing to secure payment of worker’s compensation, failing to obtain coverage that meets the requirements, misrepresenting employees as independent contractors and materially understating or concealing payroll.
A second stop work order cited Alvaro Construction, 249 Greenwich Ave in Stamford for misrepresenting employees as independent contractors.
