Two Comp decisions from Commonwealth Court

(1/3/06) - The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court recently decided two cases involving benefits in workers’ compensation cases.

* In Housing Auth. of the City of Pittsburgh v. WCAB, the Court, on Dec. 9, affirmed a WCAB’s ruling upholding a WCJ’s decision to deny an employer’s modification petition because it failed to meet its burden that work was “available” to the claimant because he did not meet the residency requirement.

* In Virgo v. WCAB, the Court, on Dec. 22, affirmed an order of the WCAB upholding a WCJ’s decision denying an injured worker’s reinstatement petition and granting the employer’s suspension petition based on a finding that nay loss of earning power was the result of employee’s discharge from employment due to “bad faith” in carrying out her job responsibilities.
