Effective Monday, March 23, 2020, Governor Lamont has suspended non-critical Workers’ Compensation Commission statutory, regulatory and administrative deadlines.
WCC is hopeful these temporary deadline suspensions outlined in the Governor’s Executive Order will help to alleviate the many concerns parties have expressed to WCC during this difficult time.
All parties are expected to continue to abide as closely as possible to ALL of the deadlines outlined in the Workers’ Compensation Act, including, but not limited to, Section 31-303. These are extraordinary times, and one of the several purposes of these deadline waivers is to facilitate the transacting of business. WCC is counting on all parties to not take advantage of the executive order to unnecessarily delay the processing and providing of benefits.
