The recent case of Olson v Capital Electric handed down by the Nebraska Court of Appeals as an unpublished opinion says no you don’t have to move. Olson an injured electician refused to move to Kansas City to work for Capial Electric while he was released from his doctor with light duty restrictions which could not be accomodated on his regular job with Capital in Omaha Nebraska. Capital Electric took a position which this court rejected as not supported by the Nebraska Worker Compensation statute or Nebraska case law. The issue of moving appears to be fact driven, but in this case, the court found that Olson was still temporarily totally disabled.
