Agency Mission

The Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) administers the workers’ compensation laws of the State of Connecticut. Read our agency mission statement here.


The Workers' Compensation Act provides for an administrative agency - the Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC) - to oversee the State's workers' compensation system, and specifies policies and procedures under which it operates.

Dispute Resolution

The Workers' Compensation Commission's most important duty is to adjudicate disputes in workers' compensation cases, and to hear appeals of contested legal decisions arising from those disputes.

Commission Services

In addition to resolving disputes in workers' compensation cases, the Workers' Compensation Act specifies a number of additional services the State provides under the auspices of the Workers' Compensation Commission.

Commission Offices

The Workers' Compensation Commission is administered out of a central office located in Hartford. In addition, there are eight District Offices located throughout the state.

Commission Policies
