Congress has stymied the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) attempt to issue comprehensive ergonomic regulations after businesses complained that the agency's proposals were overly restrictive and burdensome.

But the Virginia Court of Appeals ruled in two separate cases that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a disease, paving the way for victims to collect worker's compensation benefits.
