Petit v. Coca Cola Enterprises

CASE NO. 5660 CRB-1-11-6

COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION

AUGUST 2, 2011

EDWARD PETIT, JR.

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

COCA COLA ENTERPRISES

EMPLOYER

and

SEDGWICK CMS

INSURER

RESPONDENTS-APPELLANTS

REMAND ORDER

Respondent filed an appeal as the result of two orders issued by the trial commissioner acting for the First District. Said orders “C.G.S. § 31-302 Commutation Order” and “C.G.S. § 31-288(c) Non-Compliance Citation Order” were issued June 22, 2011 as the result of a Pre-Formal hearing. No record exists. Due process requires an evidentiary hearing where a record can be created. Absent a record this board cannot properly consider an appeal pursuant to Sec. 31-301(a). The matter is therefore remanded to the First District for a Formal Hearing or other appropriate action. See Brennan v. Comcast Corporation, 5638 CRB-6-11-3 (April 1, 2011).
