Ohio high court: KFC worker's firing terms entitle him to benefits

COLUMBUS Ohio The Ohio Supreme Court reversed itself Thursday and ruled on a 5-2 vote that David Gross, a then-16-year-old KFC worker who was fired by a franchisee in 2003 for violating safety rules after he badly burned himself, should get temporary disability benefits.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Gross was injured after trying to clean a pressure cooker by boiling water in it at a KFC unit in the Dayton, Ohio, area.
