R. E. Sheehan Co. v. Shuler, 265 U.S. 371 (1924)

R. E. Sheehan Co. v. Shuler

No. 593

Argued January 9, 1924

Decided May 26, 1924

265 U.S. 371


Amendments of the New York Workmen's Compensation Law (see New York Central R. Co. v. White, 243 U. S. 188,) provide that, when an injury causes the death of an employee leaving no beneficiaries, the employer or other insurance carrier shall pay the state Treasurer $500 for each of two special funds, one to be used in paying additional compensation to employees incurring permanent total disability after partial disability, the other in vocational education of employees so injured as to need rehabilitation, the use of the special funds for these purposes being additional compensation to employees thus injured over and above that prescribed as the payments to be made by their immediate employers.


(1) That the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not require that this additional compensation be paid by the immediate employers of the employees to be benefited, nor prevent the legislature from providing for its payment out of general funds created as above described. P. 265 U. S. 376. Mountain Timber Co. v. Washington, 243 U. S. 219.

(2) The arrangement does not conflict with the equal protection clause. P. 265 U. S. 378.
