Workers' Compensation Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44111 - DeJesus v. R.P.M Enterprises, Inc. (“Workers’ Compensation Commission and jurisdiction; compensable injury; entitlement to temporary total disability benefits and payment for medical bills; “Because R.P.M. did not carry workers’ compensation insurance, the defendant Second Injury Fund (fund) was cited in as a party to the action pursuant to General Statutes § 31-355. On appeal, R.P.M. and Marion claim that the board erred in affirming (1) the commissioner’s rulings that the plaintiff’s claim for benefits was not time barred pursuant to General Statutes § 31-294c3 and that the plaintiff was an employee of R.P.M. and/or Marion, (2) the award of compensation by the commissioner against Marion at the request of the fund when no claim was brought against Marion, and (3) the decision of the commissioner that he had jurisdiction to make a finding that R.P.M. and Marion were the same entity for the purposes of piercing the corporate veil. We reverse, in part, the decisions of the board.”)
