Executive Summary

Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board

Summary of AGC Communications – Decision After Reconsideration

The Board inadvertently sent the Notice of Hearing to Employer at its old address.  Employer's subsequent failure to appear at hearing was held to be due to Employer's failure to receive notice, and not due to Employer's fault.  The Board retains jurisdiction to correct its own errors when they cause a party to be denied due process.  The matter was remanded so it could be rescheduled for hearing.
