THEIS PRECISION STEEL CORPORATION
TRAVELERS PROPERTY & CASUALTY
The trial commissioner acting for the Sixth District issued an Order Pursuant to C.G.S. Sec. 31-294f October 14, 2016 as the result of an informal hearing.
Respondents filed an appeal from that Order November 3, 2016. No record exists. Due process requires an evidentiary hearing where a record can be created. Absent a record the Compensation Review Board cannot properly consider or review this appeal pursuant to Sec. 31-301(a).
The matter is therefore remanded to the Sixth District for a Formal Hearing or other appropriate action. See Flory v. Lowe’s Distribution Center, 6143 CRB-2-16-10 (November 7, 2016); Fields v. Southern Connecticut Gas Company/United Illuminating Company, 6097 CRB-4-16-5 (May 25, 2016).
