Supreme Court Reverses Court of Appeals and Finds Voluntary Abandonment Precludes Compensation

In State ex re. Kelsey Hayes Co. v. Grashel, 2013-Ohio-4959, the Ohio Supreme Court granted an employer’s writ of mandamus to vacate a Commission order granted the claimant PTD benefits.  The Court found the claimant voluntarily abandoned the workforce due to retirement.  The Court also found the Commission erroneously relied on the opinion of a treating physician, whose opinion had been previously rejected by the Commission.  Read the full decision here.
