Trial Win: Employer Dismissed in Jersey Action Involving Employee Leasing Company

LOIS successfully defended an employer directly against a workers’ compensation claim and got them dismissed from the claim. The employer hired us directly to defend their interests in a workers’ compensation claim filed against them. An employee leasing entity provided the employee along with worker’s compensation coverage. The employer leasing company argued that they had terminated their contract of services with the employer and were therefore not responsible. We successfully argued that the statute for termination of insurance coverage was applicable and that they had not complied. First, the employer leasing company only provided a copy of the termination letter, but had not shown any proof of mailing or proof of service. Second, the accident occurred 2 days later (on a Sunday). The Judge entered an order against the employer leasing company and dismissed our client from the claim.

Trial Win: Security Guard Claim Not Eligible for 9/11 Presumptions of Compensability

This World Trade Center claim disallowed by the trial judge on October 23, 2018 as routine work duties of a security guard are not covered by Article 8-A. Disallowance affirmed by the Board Panel on January 3, 2019 as the application was defective based on our argument that the claimant’s work was not covered activity pursuant to Article 8-A, as he did not allege participating in rescue, clean-up, or recovery operations. We argued that the controlling case law, Matter of Summit Security Services, 2009 Wrk. Comp. LEXIS 12244 (WCB #00820031), stands for the proposition that the routine duties of a security guard do not covered by Article 8-A.
