Secola v. State/Comptrollers Office, 13 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 121, 1703 CRB-5-93-4 (January 31, 1995).

Respondents contend that claimant violated § 31-290c by failing to disclose that she suffered from terminal cancer, which was unrelated to her compensable injury, when voluntary agreement was made. CRB would not interpret § 31-290c to require claimant to voluntarily offer all potentially relevant information to insurance company. In absence of specific inquiry, claimant’s silence did not constitute fraudulent nondisclosure. See also, Secola, § 31-296, Voluntary Agreements (approval of). See subsequent decision, Secola, 3102 CRB-5-95-6 (February 26, 1997).

Tessier v. Kogut Florist and Nurseryman, Inc., 9 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 276, 1088 CRD-8-90-7 (December 13, 1991).

Trier has no criminal jurisdiction to declare claimant committed a Class A misdemeanor. See also, Tessier, § 31-301. Factual findings and Appeal procedure, § 31-307. Total disability.
