WAYNE MORAN v. FULTON BELLOWS & COMPONENTS, INC. (TWCA August 17, 2010)
Employee alleged that he sustained hearing loss as a result of his work for employer. He filed a civil action 94 days after an impasse was reached at a benefit review conference. The trial court granted employer's motion to dismiss on the basis of the 90-day statute of limitations, Tenn. Code Ann. section 50-6-203(g)(1) (2008). On appeal, employee contends that the report of the benefit review conference was never "filed with the commissioner" of Labor and Workforce Development as required by the statute and that the 90-day limitation period therefore never began to run. We affirm the judgment.
