The Workers' Compensation Commission is comprised of an administrative office (the Office of the Chairman) located in Hartford, and eight workers' compensation districts each having jurisdiction over workers' compensation activity taking place in specific geographic regions within Connecticut (with a District Office for each district throughout the State).
Office of the Chairman
The Office of the Chairman is the office of the agency head, as well as the agency's appellate body hearing appeals from District-level decisions in workers' compensation cases, the Compensation Review Board (CRB).
The Office of the Chairman also houses the various administrative units that provide oversight of other statutory programs not part of the mandate of the 8 workers' compensation jurisdictions (e.g., Employer Medical Care Plans, Self-Insurance, and Safety & Health Committees), as well as those that provide administrative support for the eight District Offices.
