Four Keys to Understanding the Significance of Johnson v. U.S. Food Service

Joe Patton | December 1, 2020 | Read this blog post

Summary: Howard Johnson, who had been employed by U.S. Food Service, injured his neck on the ground and received a valid but shockingly low workers' compensation award. Mr. Johnson challenged the workers' compensation statute as a facially unconstitutional violation of Section 18 of the Kansas Bill of Rights, due to his inadequate remedy. Johnson v. U.S. Food Service is an appeal to the Kansas Court of Appeals from the Kansas Workers Compensation Board and is currently before the Kansas Supreme Court.
