Gelson's Markets, Inc. v. Workers' Comp. Appeals Bd., No. B209336

By FindLaw Staff on November 16, 2009 8:55 AM

Workers' Compensation Appeals Board's decision and award finding the employer liable for discrimination against an industrially injured employee because the employer did not accept a physician's release to allow the employee to return to work is annulled as the employee did not establish a prima facie showing of employer's liability for discrimination in violation of Labor Code section 132a, and as such, the burden did not shift to the employer to establish an affirmative defense.
