Workers' Compensation Less Arduous Duty Process


C.G.S.  Chapter 67, section 5-244 states:
“When an employee has become physically or mentally incapable of, or unfit for, the efficient performance of the duties of his position, by reason of infirmities due to advanced age or other disability, the appointing authority shall recommend to the Commissioner of Administrative Services that the employee be transferred to less arduous duties or separated from state service in good standing.”

Although the statute is not limited to Workers’ Compensation, this document applies to state employees with workers’ compensation injuries/illnesses permanently prohibiting a return to regular duty within their state government job classification.
