Q AFTER i RECEIVE A SECTION 32 SETTLEMENT, CAN WORKERS' COMP TAKE IT BACK?
ASection 32 settlements are full and final, just like a general release in a regular lawsuit. However, you must go through various steps. The final steps are (1) Approval from the Workers' Comp Judge, THEN (2) a ten day waiting period where any side can withdraw and then (3) the issuance of the final decision. Once that happens you are supposed to be paid and the case is over.
