Managers seek outside review of workers' compensation program

June 20, 2005

KENNEWICK -- Federal managers at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation are asking for an independent review of the program that handles workers' compensation claims at the site.

Workers at last week's annual meeting complained they had to hire attorneys to seek payment for some medical claims, with some workers complaining they waited more than a year before being paid on other claims.

In an e-mail to Hanford employees Friday, U.S. Department of Energy managers at Hanford said they would appeal to one of the agency's assistant secretaries for help.
