Executive Summary

Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board

Summary of MCI Worldcom – Decision After Reconsideration

Employer was a "dual employer" of persons assigned by another company to work on MCI's project.  The Board held that MCI was not obligated under the particular circumstances to cover the contract employees under MCI's Injury and Illness Prevention Program.  Accordingly the Board reversed the Administrative Law Judge's decision to uphold the citation for a violation of Title 8, California Code of Regulations section 3203(a), and granted Employer's appeal.
