Morales v. City of Bridgeport

CASE NO. 3087 CRB-4-95-6

COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION

JULY 11, 1995

DAVID MORALES

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

CITY OF BRIDGEPORT

EMPLOYER

RESPONDENT-APPELLANT

ORDER OF DISMISSAL

Respondent, City of Bridgeport filed a Petition for Review June 12, 1995 from the Fourth District Commissioner’s May 31, 1995 Finding and Award wherein the trier found the city terminated claimant’s employment in violation of Sec. 31-290a.

Sec. 31-290a states in pertinent part; “No employer . . . shall discharge, or cause to be discharged, or in any manner discriminate against any employee because the employee has filed a claim for workers’ compensation benefits . . . . The statute then goes on to state “[a]ny party aggrieved by the decision of the commissioner may appeal the decision to the appellate court.”

As this Board lacks jurisdiction to hear and decide Sec. 31-290a appeals, the appeal is dismissed. See, Morales v. Hydro Conduit Corp., 13 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 10, 2155 CRB-6-94-9 (10/17/94); Carreira v. Data Mail, 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 268, 1391 CRB-6-92-3 (11/18/93); Rondini v. Tectonic Industries, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 210, 1231 CRD-6-91-5 (12/4/92).
