MICHAEL DEVEREUX v. UNITED PARCEL SERVICE, INC. (TWCA March 8, 2011)
Pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51, this workers' compensation appeal has been referred to the Special Workers' Compensation Appeals Panel for a hearing and a report of findings of fact and conclusions of law.
The employee sought reconsideration of his earlier workers' compensation settlement, which had been "capped" pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated section 50-6-241(d). His employer asserted that he had been terminated for cause, and was therefore not eligible for reconsideration. The trial court found for the employee and awarded additional benefits. We affirm the judgment.
