Stipulations Regarding Time Loss Compensation May Tie Employers' Hands

Pursuant to state's worker compensation statutes, injured workers can receive paid medical treatment and compensation for lost earnings, which is known as "time loss." Employers often stipulate that a worker has suffered an injury on the job in order to streamline the process and ensure that the worker receives compensation as soon as possible. That stipulation may have a significant impact later if the worker and/or the employer decide to appeal the resulting time loss award. In Chunyk & Conley/Quad-C v. Braw, 156 Wn. App. 246 (2010), such an employer stipulation resulted in the Court's setting aside a jury verdict that a worker was not injured.
