Summary of Strong Electric - Denial of Petition for Reconsideration

The case was settled at a Prehearing Conference. The Division withdrew Citation No. 2, Employer withdrew its appeal from Citation No. 1, Items 1-3 and the ALJ issued a disposition order. Employer sought reconsideration of the order. The petition sought to introduce evidence to prove that the violations alleged in Items 1 - 3 were not committed. The Board holds that the petition does not state the Labor Code section 6617 grounds for reconsideration or comply with the section 391 specificity requirements. The petition is "unduly conclusionary" and states several grounds for reconsideration "without supporting evidence." Reconsideration by the Board is denied.
