Parma Community Gen. Hosp., State ex rel. v. Jankowski (5/29/02)

The purpose of temporary total compensation is to compensate an injured worker for lost earnings. Therefore, a claimant who is receiving temporary total and performs activities in a workplace environment is not barred from receipt of temporary total if (1) the claimant is not paid for the activities, and (2) the activities are not inconsistent with the claim that the claimant is incapable of performing their prior work activities.
