I am on workman's comp. My family owns a bar and I work there occasionally without pay. I have done this many years before the injury and within my work restrictions. Can they say, I should be paid and take away this income from my workers comp?

If your last hearing was in January, I would be surprised if you heard anything before July. The judge allows the party to submit legal briefs, which takes about three months.
