Morales v. Hydro Conduit Corp.

CASE NO. 2155 CRB-6-94-9

COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION

OCTOBER 17, 1994

ANTONIO MORALES

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

HYDRO CONDUIT CORP.

EMPLOYER

RESPONDENT-APPELLANT

ORDER OF DISMISSAL

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.
