Davis v. Workers' Comp. App. Bd. (Allied Sec.), H029544, H029834
The Legislature's 2004 overhaul of the workers' compensation statutes was not intended to alter the formula used to calculate a permanent disability award when the employee's overall disability is subject to apportionment, and the calculation adopted by Fuentes v. Workers' Comp. Appeals Bd. (1976) 16 Cal.3d 1 continues to be appropriate.
