CASE NO. 2155 CRB-6-94-9
COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION
OCTOBER 17, 1994
HYDRO CONDUIT CORP.
Respondent-employer filed a Petition for Review September 26, 1994 from the Commissioner acting for the Sixth District’s September 15, 1994 Finding of Facts and Award of Compensation. The trial commissioner found respondent-employer violated Sec. 31-290a C.G.S.
Sec. 31-290a prohibits discrimination against claimants who pursue their rights under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The Compensation Review Board has previously held that the Board lacks jurisdiction to hear and decide Sec. 31-290a appeals. All appeals from Sec. 31-290a findings are to be filed in conformance with said statute directly to the Appellate Court. See Carreira v. Data Mail, 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 268, 1391 CRB-6-92-3 (1993); Rondini v. Tectonic Industries, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 210, 1231 CRD-6-91-5 (1992).
Respondent-employer’s appeal is therefore dismissed.
