The Respondent, Second Injury Fund has filed an appeal from the trial commissioner’s November 1, 2007 Order imposing a 20% penalty for late payment pursuant to Sec. 31-303. Said order was issued as the result of an informal hearing. No record exists. Absent a record this board cannot properly consider this appeal pursuant to Sec. 31-301(a). The matter is therefore remanded to the trial commissioner acting for the Third District for a Formal Hearing or other appropriate action. SeeTerlecky v. Stanley Works, Inc., 5277 CRB-6-07-10 (October 22, 2007).
