Partial Incapacity Earning Capacity Work Search Findings of Fact
Summary from the Troubh Heisler Attorneys
The panel affirmed the hearing officer’s decision awarding a fixed rate of partial incapacity benefits, ruling that there was competent evidence in the record to support the finding that Morneault was able to earn $337 per week, and that the hearing officer had made adequate findings of fact to permit appellate review. Morneault had performed no work search and introduced no other evidence regarding the availability of work, and the hearing officer properly considered a number of factors in determining his post-injury earning capacity.
