BCI Coca-Cola of Los Angeles v. Josue -
Hawaii First Circuit Court
NFIB filed an amicus brief explaining the practical difficulties that would be imposed on employers if the courts should accept the Department of Labor’s interpretation of a statute so as to require employers to return an employee to the same position he or she held before an injury without regard to how long the employee has been out of commission. NFIB Legal Center argued that the employer should only be required to make reasonable accomodations.
