RHSW appellate win upheld by the Georgia Supreme Court

RHSW appellate win upheld by the Georgia Supreme Court

Recently, the Georgia Supreme Court declined review of the Court of Appeals’ decision in Brown Mechanical Contractors, Inc. v. Maughon, a case brought and won by Rick Shinall and Philip Stein of our firm. This denial effectively upholds the Georgia Court of Appeals decision denying indemnity benefits to a claimant who did not perform a diligent job search following termination.

The decision centers on the analysis of the claimant's job search to determine if it was sufficiently diligent. The specific job search in Maughon saw the claimant apply for over 100 jobs prior to his administrative hearing. A closer examination of this job search, however, revealed that the claimant’s applications were infrequent and insincere, and that he took steps to sabotage his own chances of being hired. The Georgia Court of Appeals agreed with this assessment and effectively raised the bar on what constitutes a diligent job search.

Going forward, we expect Maughon to emerge as an indispensable guide in job search cases.
