WCC Voluntary Agreements Memorandum - June 9, 2005


MEMORANDUM NO. 2005-05

TO: Commissioners, District Administrators, Self-Insureds, Insurance Carriers, Attorneys, Unions, Legal Advisory Panel, and Advisory Board Members
FROM: John A. Mastropietro, Chairman
DATE: June 9, 2005
RE: Voluntary Agreements

Pursuant to Administrative Regulation § 31-296-1, employers or their insurers are required to file Voluntary Agreements in all cases where there is no dispute that the claimant suffered a compensable injury causing either temporary partial or temporary total disability beyond the three day waiting period. A reminder of this obligation was issued several years ago, which produced adherence for only a short period of time. You are again reminded that it is the policy of this Commission that Voluntary Agreements should be issued and that the Commissioners and staff of the Workers' Compensation Commission will be monitoring cases to ensure compliance. Employers/insurers should note that "[n]on-compliance with this section is subject to the penalty provided in section 31-288 of the general statutes."
