Lefevre v. TPC Associates, Inc., 6255 CRB-4-18-3 (March 26, 2019), appeal withdrawn, A.C. 42802 (April 22, 2019).
Commissioner granted motion to preclude after concluding that respondent employer’s donation to claimant’s GoFundMe page did not satisfy requirements set forth in General Statutes § 31-294c (b). CRB affirmed, noting that witness testimony did not provide adequate basis for reasonable inference that donation constituted payment for twenty six weeks of compensation or, alternatively, that respondents had provided medical care as contemplated by statute. CRB also noted that charitable donations are not included in definition of “compensation” as set forth in General Statutes § 31-275 (4). CRB affirmed commissioner’s denial of motion to correct, noting that respondents’ proposed corrections primarily served to reiterate arguments which had been unavailing at trial. See also, Lefevre, § 31-294c (b); § 31-301 Factual findings.
