Joseph Greenwald & Laake attorney Debora Fajer-Smith attended a Maryland Legislative Senate House Oversight Committee for Workers Compensation Senate hearing on Monday, Dec. 4. During the hearing, Debora discussed and questioned legislation that introduced to bring State Correctional Officers under the same realm of all public safety positions.
She also introduced legislation involving the case of Buckler v. Willett Construction Company (1996), where Jurist Irma Raker indicated that temporary total disability and temporary partial disability were never defined in Maryland statutes. Debora argued that these definitions must be defined to allow workers with multiple jobs to receive pay from all in the case of an injury.
