|Docket Number:||DIA Board No. 003702-00|
- Employee: Peter J. Megazzini
- Employer: Bell Atlantaic
- Self Insurer: Verizon New England, Inc.
FABRICANT, J. The employee appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge denied his claim for penalties pursuant to G. L. c. 152, § 8(1) for non-payment of interest due pursuant to G. L. c. 152, § 50 from a previous hearing decision. Because we find that G. L. c. 152, § 8(1) applies only to payments due an employee under the specific terms stated in an order or decision, and because the prior hearing decision did not specifically award interest pursuant to G. L. c. 152, § 50, we affirm the decision of the administrative judge denying the employee's claim for penalties.
