In State ex rel. Oldaker v. Indus. Comm., 2014-Ohio-470, a firefighter with an allowed workers’ compensation claim, was unable to return to his job because of permanent restrictions from his injuries. The firefighter began a job search and filed a wage loss application with the Industrial Commission. After about 5 weeks, he had contacted 37 employers, but received no job interviews. Thereafter, he took a job working for his wife as a deer herder at a substantial pay cut. The court found the firefighter did not make a good faith search for suitable employment, which was comparably paying work and upheld the Commission’s decision to deny the wage loss application.
