CASE NO. 5893 CRB-5-13-10
COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION
NOVEMBER 22, 2013
STATE OF CONNECTICUT/DEPARTMENT OF DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES
GALLAGHER BASSETT SERVICES, INC.
The Respondent Employer filed a Petition for Review from an October 15, 2013 31-308a Order – Post Specific. The order is from an informal 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 appeal is therefore remanded to the trial commissioner acting for the Fifth District for a Formal Hearing or other appropriate action. See Macbride v. Connecticut Energy Corp., 5668 CRB-3-11-7 (August 5, 2011).
