The Workers’ Compensation Act (Chapter 568 of the Connecticut General Statutes) was first enacted in 1913. There have been numerous changes to the Act since that time, but the main premise of the Act has always been to provide wage replacement and other benefits, as well as medical treatment, for those employees who have been injured, disabled, or killed while performing their jobs. The Act also sets up an administrative system to provide for workers’ compensation benefits by creating the Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) as the agency to administer the provisions of the Act.
