  • You are receiving workers' compensation benefits from another state for the same injury.
  • You are receiving pension benefits from your employer.
  • You are receiving disability benefits paid in whole or in part by your employer.
  • You have past-due child support obligations.
  • Your injury was the result of alcohol or drug use.
  • You willfully deceive your employer regarding your ability to perform your assigned work duties.
  • You willfully failed to use a safety device, such as a hard hat, safety glasses, or safety harness.
  • You intentionally failed to follow a reasonable safety rule.
