Last week, we discussed how Utah Applies Workers Compensation Exclusive Remedy Protection to Wrap-Up General Contractors.
This week, Connecticut did the same.
On Wednesday, the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmatively extended the exclusive remedy protection to a contractor who procured workers’ compensation benefits through a CCIP. The ruling, in Elvira R. Gonzalez et al. v. O and G Industries, Inc., et al., held that a general contractor had “paid compensation benefits,” within the meaning of Conn. Gen. Stat. § 31-291, when the general contractor’s workers’ compensation insurer paid benefits to two injured employees of enrolled subcontractors.
