Bylo v. Pepsi Cola Company

CASE NO. 4058 CRB-03-99-06

COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION

JULY 13, 1999

ROBERT BYLO, JR.

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

PEPSI COLA COMPANY

EMPLOYER

RESPONDENT-APPELLANT

DISMISSAL ORDER

The respondent Pepsi Cola Company has filed a petition for review from the June 1, 1999 Finding and Award of the commissioner acting for the Third District. The trial commissioner found claimant instituted a claim for a work related back injury and was terminated in retaliation for exercising his rights under the workers’ compensation Act.

This Board lacks jurisdiction over respondent’s appeal relating to a Section 31-290a since the statute requires that the appeal proceed to the Appellate Court. See, Young v. SVG Lithography Systems, Inc., 3927 CRB-0797-11 (November 18, 1998); Rapuano v. Yale University, 3868 CRB-03-98-07 (August 24, 1998); Rondini v. Tectonic Industries, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 210, 1231 CRD-6-91-4 (Dec. 4, 1992).

Therefore, the respondent’s appeal is dismissed.
