Four Keys to Understanding the Significance of Johnson v. U.S. Food Service

Joe Patton | Dec. 1, 2020 | Read this blog post

Summary: Howard Johnson, who had been employed by U.S. Food Service, injured his neck on the job and received a valid but shockingly low workers' compensation award. Mr. Johnson challenged the workers' compensation statute as a facially unconstitutional violation of Section 18 of the Kansas Bill of Rights, due to his inadequate remedy. Johnson v. U.S. Food Service is an appeal to the Kansas Court of Appeals from the Kansas Workers Compensation Board and is currently before the Kansas Supreme Court.

The Kansas Corporate Practice of Medicine [H.B. 2119, 88th Leg., Reg. Sess. (Kan. 2019).]

Christopher L. Grause | December 2, 2020 | Read this comment

Summary: The Kansas Corporate Practice of Medicine Doctrine forbids a general corporation from employing a physician with few exceptions. However, in 2019, the Kansas Legislature passed H.B. 2119, which recognizes such exceptions and allows corporations to employ physicians upon certification from the Board of Healing Arts. H.B. 2119, however, has not been interpreted by the Kansas Supreme Court. This newly-enacted bill could restrict the corporate practice of medicine, rather than expand it as intended.
