In regards to a predominant cause requirement in psychiatric permanent disability

In order for an psychiatric injury to be compensable the employee shall demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence that actual events of employment were predominant as to all causes combined of the psychiatric injury. Predominant means that the actual events of employment account for greater than 50% of a psychiatric disability/injury.
