Impact of the Taher v. Yiota Taxis Decision: Third Fridays Podcast


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 the Taher decision 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?
