No Workers' Comp for Burned Teen

After David Gross suffered severe burns while cleaning a pressure cooker at a KFC restaurant chain, the 16-year-old high school student began receiving workers' compensation for his injuries. However, after the company investigated the claim, it found Gross was ineligible for workers' comp because he had violated KFC safety rules, which resulted in his termination.

On Dec. 27, Ohio's Supreme Court found in favor of Food, Folks & Fun Inc., which owns KFC, reversing a lower court's ruling that upheld Gross' right to receive compensation.
