Mazzone v. Connecticut Transit Co
In Mazzone v. Connecticut Transit Co., 240 Conn. 788, 792-93, 694 A.2d 1230 (1997), the court concluded that an employee injured during an unpaid lunch hour was still in the course of employment. Id.
In so concluding, the court relied on McNamara v. Hamden, 176 Conn. 547, 551, 398 A.2d 1161 (1979), for the proposition that "'the exact time of injury is not significant' for purposes of compensation, so long as injury takes place on premises and in close temporal proximity to work day . . . ."
