Court: Age can’t be used to assess workers’ comp

first_imgSACRAMENTO – A state appeals court has given a partial victory to older workers who suffer job-related disabilities. The 3rd District Court of Appeal, in an unanimous decision, said Monday that a disabled employee’s age could not be used to reduce workers’ compensation benefits. But the court left open the possibility that an age-related condition such as osteoporosis could be taken into consideration in determining how much in benefits to give a worker who suffers a permanent disability. “The question here is not whether it was proper to apportion some disability to preexisting conditions but whether it was proper to apportion 40 percent of the disability to those conditions,” Justice Harry Hull wrote for the court. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsThe ruling involves a 76-year- old Sacramento woman, Lois Vaira, who suffered a broken back in 2003 while working as a receptionist for the California Travel and Tourism Commission and was found to be partially disabled as a result of the injury. A medical examiner, using an apportionment procedure re- quired under legislation pushed through by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and employers in 2004, concluded that 40 percent of Vaira’s disability was due to osteoporosis or the precondition of osteopenia. A workers’ compensation judge then cut Vaira’s workers’ compensation benefits by 40 percent, ruling that her age and the pre-existing weakness in her spinal column contributed to her disability even though she said she had no symptoms.last_img read more


first_imgDONEGAL got another tourism boost today – after one of the county’s top golf courses was given a ‘must play’ write-up by the world’s leading golf website.Golf International’s article also appeared on the official PGA Tour website.The article states: “If the name, Donegal, conjures up a special image of the real Ireland, then Ballyliffin will be for you. Located at the northernmost tip of Ireland, at the top end of County Donegal, this is the place for nature lovers, hill walkers and those who just yearn to view the best of Mother Nature’s handiwork. Spectacular scenery and clear fresh air, some say the freshest in the world, are all here in abundance.“Ballyliffin Golf Club was inaugurated in 1947 and today boasts 2 eighteen-hole layouts. The Old Course, where golf had certainly been played way before the formation of the club and though records remain quite hazy as to who the architect might have been, it is clear that the principal designer was Mother Nature herself, as there may be no more natural course in the entire world.“The second course at Ballyliffin, the Glashedy Links, has a more documented pedigree. Designed by the noted Irish architect, Pat Ruddy of European Club fame, working with Tom Craddock, Glashedy was opened in 1995. There are those who claim this may well be the best links course designed in the British Isles in half a century, despite its relative youth.“For those who journey this far, both courses must be played. Each has its own distinct personality and it is impossible to rate one higher than the other; they are both a joy to play and present quite contrasting challenges.“Some have called the two courses at Ballyliffin, formidable, while others have used much stronger language. The pair is well worth the trek for the seasoned golfer who is looking for a lot more than many other courses are able to provide.”Other Donegal courses are also given the thumbs up on the websiteIt says: “Bundoran, Donegal’s Murvagh, Rosapenna, Portsalon and Ballyliffin are layouts that simply must be played by any serious golfer. Each is a treat and guaranteed to provide a genuine Irish golf experience ranking alongside the very best.”BOOST FOR DONEGAL AS OUR GOLF COURSES GET THUMBS UP was last modified: February 24th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘It’s unbelievable’ – Ex-Rangers star blasts Celtic ace for Hampden Park criticism

first_img“But we are where we are now. We’re going to stay there for a long time and buying the stadium is great news.”Adam did agree with Brown’s view that Scotland could take games around the country, but only the lesser matches that will not draw a big crowd.He continued: “That’s our national stadium and we’ve had some great games there – we’ve got to stay there. Okay, maybe one or two of the smaller games we take round the country, but the big ones have got to stay at the national stadium.” Latest Scottish football news 2 2 “The bigger games could be at Murrayfield as well. We have some great stadiums here but we choose to use the wrong stadium for a football match.”Stoke midfielder Adam, who has played 26 times for Scotland, could not believe Brown’s view of Hampden, and the former Rangers star joined talkSPORT to blast the Celtic man’s criticism.“It’s strange,” Adam said. “I don’t get where he sees it from.“When you are playing against the smaller nations of course the atmosphere is going to be difficult, but [against bigger teams] there have been great days and great nights at Hampden. The atmosphere is unbelievable!“So I don’t know where he’s coming from, it’s probably publicity a little bit.“I’m surprised. The SFA announced the decision to buy Hampden earlier this week The SFA will pay £5million to buy the ground off Queen’s Park, with the League Two side set to use Lesser Hampden as their primary stadium.Brown, the Celtic captain, criticised the SFA’s decision to stay at the almost 52,000-seater Hampden, instead suggesting Scotland should have toured the country.Quoted in the Daily Mail, Brown said: “Do I think staying at Hampden is the right move? No! Hampden is possibly one of the worst stadiums I have played in for atmosphere.“For Scotland, I think we should be playing at Celtic Park, Ibrox, then the smaller games – when you only get 17,000 crowds – should be at Hibs and Hearts. Adam and Brown have previously represented their country together Charlie Adam cannot understand Scott Brown’s criticism of Hampden Park after the Celtic midfielder called the ground ‘one of the worst stadiums’ he has ever played at.The Scottish Football Association confirmed their decision to continue with Hampden as Scotland’s home of football beyond 2020, despite serious discussions over a potential move to Murrayfield. scrap Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos last_img read more
