C.P. Martin Ford (Employer) petitions for review from an order of the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board (Board) which affirmed the order of a Workers’ Compensation Judge (WCJ) granting the Claim Petition filed by Resad Dzubur (Claimant). We vacate and remand.

On October 21, 1993, Claimant began receiving compensation benefits pursuant to a Notice of Compensation Payable for a lumbar strain that occurred while he was working for Norristown Ford (Norristown). In April of 1996, Claimant returned to work with a different employer and, in August of 1996, he started working for Employer. Thereafter, Claimant filed a Claim Petition alleging that, on September 25, 1996, he sustained an injury while working for Employer in the nature of “pain, tingling and numbness in back and radiating down both legs” that occurred when he was inserting an electronic part under a dashboard. Employer filed an Answer denying the allegations set forth in Claimant’s Claim Petition. Claimant also concurrently filed a Reinstatement Petition alleging that, on September 25, 1996, he sustained a recurrence of the September 20, 1993 work injury that occurred while he was working for Norristown. Norristown filed an Answer asserting that Claimant’s disability is the result of a new injury rather than the recurrence of a previous injury. Because Employer and Norristown agreed that Claimant was injured but disagreed as to how liability should be apportioned, the WCJ issued an order pursuant to Section 410 of the Workers’ Compensation Act (Act), Act of June 2, 1915, P.L. 736, as amended, 77 P.S. � 751, instructing Employer and Norristown to each pay fifty percent of Claimant’s compensation benefits and medical expenses.
