EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH

APPEALS BOARD

Summary of Foster Turkey Products - DAR

An affected employee with party status sought reconsideration of an order granting a settlement reached between Employer and the Division by which Employer withdrew its appeals in exchange for a non-admission clause. The employee did not prove he was denied an opportunity to participate in the settlement discussions or that the non-admission clause affected his Workers Compensation case. The Board finds no policy reasons for disapproving the disposition order and affirms it.
