Structure of the Workers' Compensation Commission
The Commission has eight offices, or districts, with one or more commissioners hearing cases in each. Your claim should be filed in the district in which the injury occurred. If your injury occurred outside of Connecticut, you may file your claim in the district where you live, or in the district where your employer is located. You may request a change to a more convenient district after you file your claim if travel presents a problem.

This is also the location of the Compensation Review Board, or CRB. The CRB hears and decides appeals from decisions by the fifteen commissioners who decide cases. The CRB panel is made up of two of the fifteen commissioners who serve on a rotating schedule, plus the Chairman. Commissioners cannot hear appeals of their own decisions. Appeals from the CRB are heard by the Appellate Court, and sometimes by the Supreme Court.
