A: This question cannot be answered with the information provided. Generally, no, a second job should not have any influence on your WC case unless the employer is seeking apportionment to secondary employment, If I were a defense attorney, I would try to get contribution from the second employer for a CT claim. Further, WC awards are lifetime, not for the time of employment only. I suggest you speak with the Information & Assistance office to make sure you have the facts right.
