Workers' Comp Benefits Based on Employee's Perception That a Temporary Job Is Demeaning

In Wilson v. Workmen's Compensation Appeal Board (Aluminum Co. of America), 542 Pa. 614, 624, 669 A.2d 338, 343 (1996), our Supreme Court stated that "an employee's perception that a temporary job is demeaning is not a basis for awarding workers' compensation benefits. An employer does not have to place an employee in a position commensurate with the position or status that the employee previously held or bear the risk of a workers' compensation claim for psychic injury." Id. at 629, 669 A.2d at 346.
