Partner Sam Pond was interviewed for The Legal Intelligencer’s article, “Judges Hint at Broader Rule on Workplace Violence.” He commented on the court’s recent decision regarding workers’ compensation for abnormal working conditions. The question is whether or not there should be a rule created that outlines exactly what constitutes normal working conditions.
“It would be very difficult to come up with a red line. You’d really have to turn to the legislature and say, ‘Come up with a specific number of facts that would be compensable and noncompensable,'” Pond said. “That’s why we have a body of common law.”
