Workers’ Compensation – Appeals – No Late Payment Penalty – Interest (access required)

Norman v. Food Lion, LLC When an employer has been ordered to pay workers’ compensation benefits, but the employer appeals, payment does not become due until either the employer waives the right to appeal or all appeals have been exhausted. Therefore, an employer is not subject to a late payment penalty when it loses on appeal or waives further appeal. We reverse the Industrial Commission’s award of a late payment penalty against defendants.
