Morales v. City of Bridgeport, 5750 CRB-4-12-5 (April 29, 2013).
Claimant argued that trial commissioner should have followed an alleged “past practice” and awarded him full pay while out on disability. Respondents argued that statute cited by claimant (§ 31-314) governed only advanced payments and requested relief was unavailable under Chapter 568, therefore no jurisdiction to make award. Trial commissioner agreed with respondents. On appeal, CRB upheld dismissal due to “plain meaning” of § 31-314. See also, Morales, § 31-278.
Davis v. State/Dept. of Children & Families, 4992 CRB-8-05-9 (August 8, 2006).
CRB reversed trial commissioner’s conclusion employer not permitted to take credit for sums paid out of union sick bank.
Halloran v. New Haven, 4770 CRB-3-04-1 (December 22, 2004).
CRB affirmed trier’s ruling employer could not offset claimant’s temporary total disability benefits by an amount equal to claimant’s disability pension. CRB relied on Starks v. University of Connecticut, 270 Conn. 1 (2004) in which the court construed § 31-314’s terms “paid…on account of the injury” did not refer to sums paid because of the injury.
