QSI and First Insurance Company of Hawaii appeal to be heard Jan. 18
The Hawaii Supreme Court will hear the case of Jay D. Cadiz vs. QSI, Inc., and First Insurance Company of Hawaii, LTD at 10 a.m. on Jan. 18.
Cadiz appeals to the court not to vacate a workers’ compensation claim, and to decide whether the Labor and Industrial Relations Appeals Board misapplied the substantial evidence standard of proof; and whether the conditions or incidents of a worker’s employment, rather than the nature of his or her job, caused a compensable injury by disease.
The original case revolved around a workers’ compensation claim for compensation for illnesses and symptoms related to mold exposure.
