The legislative purpose behind the temporary partial disability benefit statute, C.G.S. §31-308(a), is to enable someone injured while working for a Connecticut employer, once they are released back to work, to receive benefits while working a light duty job in their local community and the term "locality" as described in Chapter 568 does not include a community in Florida.
