Workers’ Compensation – “Make-Work” – Proffered Job – Employee Refusal – Maximum Medical Improvement (access required)

Nobles v. Coastal Power & Electric Inc. Even though the position offered to plaintiff was not always filled, it had been intermittently filled in the past. Where plaintiff had at times been required to drive farther than 60 miles to work in his previous position, there was evidence to support the Industrial Commission's determination that plaintiff's refusal of the position was not based on its distance from his home; rather, plaintiff refused the position because he would not have a company vehicle in the new position. We affirm the commission's denial of temporary total disability benefits past plaintiff's maximum medical improvement date.
