Consolidation Coal Co. v. Benefits Review Bd., 08-4651

By FindLaw Staff on December 22, 2010 3:29 PM

Claim for benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act

Consolidation Coal Co. v. Benefits Review Bd., 08-4651, concerned a challenge to the Benefit Review Board's (Board) affirmance of an ALJ's decision and order that petitioner must pay an employee benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (Act) for an injury he suffered while working for petitioner.

 

In affirming the decision of the Board, the court held that the employee's employment satisfies the status requirement and the garage where he was injured satisfies the situs requirement of section 903(a) of the Act.  The court also held that the Board did not err in determining that the employee's claim fell within the intended scope of the Act.
