Barrett Business Services, Inc. v. Workers' Compensation Appeals Board, B233168

In a dispute over whether an employer remained liable to a former employee for proceeds of a settlement of a workers' compensation claim when a check for the proceeds was mailed to the wrong address and then fraudulently endorsed and cashed by someone else, an order of the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board holding the employer liable is affirmed, where: 1) there was never any delivery of the check to the employee; and 2) the employer's mailing of the settlement check to the employee at the address specified in the settlement agreement did not discharge its obligation.
