Clark, State ex rel. v. Indus. Comm. (8/15/01)

Hostage leave benefits paid to prison guard were a collectively bargained benefit which was not intended to replace temporary total. Therefore, there is no offset against temporary total for hostage leave benefits.

Vote: 6-1

Welsh, State ex rel. v. Indus. Comm. (7/28/99)

Where Commission explicitly ordered offset against temporary total compensation of money received from sickness and accident insurance paid by employer, offset continued until Commission issued new order, even though sickness and accident insurance stopped. Order to correct amount could only go back two years from date of filing motion seeking payment of correct amount.
