In accordance with the provisions of Section 2-90 of the Connecticut General Statutes, we have audited certain operations of the Workers’ Compensation Commission.

The Workers’ Compensation Commission did not have medical certificates on file for 5 out of 8 medical leaves of absence we reviewed. In addition, the commission did not maintain required FMLA documentation for one of these absences.
