RE: Form 43/Form36


Pursuant to § 31-294c, an employer has twenty-eight (28) days after receiving notice of a claim to file a Form 43 contest of said claim. Under § 31-294c, the employer may commence payment within the 28-day period, said payment being without prejudice. If an employer commences payment within the 28-day period and wishes to later contest the case before the one year has elapsed, then the employer shall file a Form 43 and not a Form 36. A Form 36 shall only be used in an accepted case. No hearing is necessary before the Commission when the Form 43 is filed.
