An amendment to N.Y. Workers' Comp. Law, § 15(3)(w) that eased the requirement that those claiming permanent partial disability status must show attachment to the labor market cannot be applied retroactively in every case, held a New York appellate court. Where, as was the situation in the instant case, the state's Workers' Compensation Board had ruled—prior to the effective date of the amendment--that the claimant had failed to demonstrate such attachment to the labor market, the amendment did not apply.
