Stewart v. Workers’ Comp. Appeal Bd. (Stewart)

Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court

July 2, 2021

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court reversed an order of the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board that denied the claimant’s petition seeking compensation after he fell from a shuttle, which took him from the train station to the building where he worked. The Commonwealth Court found that the claimant was acting within the course and scope of his employment at the time of the fall. The Court analyzed the case under a three-pronged test outlined in Workmen’s Compensation Appeal Board (Slaugenhaupt) v. United States Steel Corporation. The Court determined the claimant satisfied each prong of the test.
