The president of a Connecticut-based welding company has been arrested for failing to pay more than $100,000 in wages owed to 35 workers on Government projects. Two warrants were issued for Andrew Jarosz of Amston Connecticut.
The Wage and Workplace Standards Director determined that 67 false certified payrolls were submitted on seven projects, including one in Danbury. Among the projects were the Danbury Head Start facility, UConn McMahon Hall and a senior center in Bristol.
The Connecticut Department of Labor says there were also many instances of payment by checks that could not be cashed.
