Pettit Kohn Obtains Defense Finding for Client

On February 2, 2012, Pettit Kohn successfully achieved a defense finding from the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, which was recently upheld on a petition for reconsideration. Pettit Kohn’s client is an information technology staffing company headquartered in New Jersey. Christine Mueller represented the client whose former worker alleged that he had been fired from his project in San Diego due to his workplace injury and was seeking many months of lost wages. The judge found that there was no discrimination in violation of the Labor Code. The matter had been pending for over two years.
