After last month’s episode discussed a favorable Board Panel Decision to employers and carriers, life at the Workers’ Compensation Board resumes normal claimant-friendly activity with the recent Third Department decision in Taher v. Yiota Taxi. Andrea Abudayeh joins Christian Sison to discuss how Taher impacts permanency cases involving established schedule and non-schedule sites. How can we best defend cases in a post-Taher world, and how are Judges applying this case going forward?
