CASE NO. 6374 CRB-1-20-1
COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION
JANUARY 31, 2020
JOSEPH RODRIGUEZ d/b/a JOHN 3:16 L.L.C.
Respondents filed a Petition for Review on January 21, 2020, resulting from the trial commissioner’s January 6, 2020 “Informal Disfigurement Evaluation” Order. No transcripts or exhibits exist; therefore, it appears no record was created upon which the board can reach a determination on the issues presented in this appeal. Due process requires an evidentiary hearing at which a record can be created. The Compensation Review Board cannot review or consider this appeal under General Statutes Section 31-301 (a).
The matter is therefore remanded to the trial commissioner acting for the Eighth District for a formal hearing or other appropriate action. See Flory v. Lowes Distribution Center, 6143 CRB-2-16-10 (November 7, 2016).
