RESPONDENTS-APPELLEES

APPEARANCES:

The claimant was represented at the trial level by David W. Cooney, Esq., Riscassi & Davis, P.C., 131 Oak Street, P.O. Box 260550, Hartford, CT 06126-0550, and on appeal the claimant appeared pro se.

The respondent, Ducci Electric was represented by Mark E. Blakeman, Esq., Michelson, Kane, Royster & Barger, P.C., 93 Oak Street, Hartford, CT 06106.

This Petition for Review from the May 2, 1991 Decision of the Commissioner At Large acting for the Sixth District was heard March 27, 1992 before a Compensation Review Board panel consisting of the then Commission Chairman, John Arcudi and Commissioners Michael S. Sherman and A. Thomas White, Jr.

OPINION

JOHN ARCUDI, COMMISSIONER. Involved in this appeal is a charge of employment discrimination under Sec. 31-290a C.G.S. The trial commissioner denied claimant’s claim. Claimant appealed that May 2, 1991 ruling to this tribunal. We have recently interpreted Sec. 31-290a(b) governing appeals under that statute. See Rondini v. Tectonic Industries, 1231 CRD-6-91-5 (December 4,1992).

Rondini held that the appeal from a commissioner’s decision in Sec. 31-290a cases was to the Appellate Court. We therefore are without jurisdiction to entertain an appeal relating to wrongful discharge.

We dismiss claimant’s appeal due to lack of jurisdiction.

Commissioners Michael S. Sherman and A. Thomas White, Jr., concur.
