In its decision on 8/15/2016, the NYS Workers Compensation Board upheld the ruling of the trial judge in St Jerome Health Services Corp finding that the claimant who was working at 2 jobs at the time she was injured, could be paid workers compensation benefits during the time that she was only able to return to work for one of her employers.
The claimant was a nurse who did supervisory work in one job and she physically cared for patients in the other. After her injury she was not able to return to work doing the physical duties involved in patient care in the second job. The Workers Compensation Board ruled she should be paid workers compensation benefits to make up for the wages she lost in the second job.
The case was tried by Robert J. Helbock and the appeal was answered by Robert J. Helbock.
