About Richard Hayber

About me

My practice is dedicated to helping hardworking Connecticut employees who have been the victims of employer abuses in their workplace, including wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and unpaid wages or commissions. I make it my business to help employees protect their careers from employers who violate the law.


Attorney Hayber is a passionate, creative and hard working advocate for employees. He has devoted his professional life to this calling and has represented employees in almost every occupation, including waiters and waitresses, automobile damage appraisers, custodians, truck drivers, teachers, assistant managers, and executive vice presidents. 


He has a natural predisposition to represent the underdog. “I have always stood up for people in my life. In high school, I stood up to a coach who was bullying my teammates. I was suspended five days, but I couldn’t just sit there and let it go on without saying something.”


His clients provide inspiration as well. “One former client gave me a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King that he hung in his office cubicle during a period of harassment and retaliation. It reads, ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’ Today, these words inspire my work.” 


Attorney Hayber graduated from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and from the University of Connecticut School of Law. He is a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Employment Lawyers Association. He represents employees in state and federal courts, before the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities and the Department of Labor. He and his clients have successfully advanced the legal rights of employees in such areas as gender discrimination, overtime claims, workplace harassment, disability discrimination, and more. He is well respected among other lawyers and most of his work is referred to him by other attorneys.
