In a familiar scenario, Wendy Steller filed a workers' compensation claim arising out of an alleged work-related back injury as well as a civil lawsuit for disability discrimination against her employer. At a court-ordered settlement conference, Steller settled both her workers' compensation and civil disability claims for $95,000. Buyer's remorse set in, and Steller subsequently sought to set aside the entire settlement on the ground that settlement of the workers' compensation claim required administrative approval by the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board ("WCAB"). In Steller v. Sears, Roebuck and Company, the California court of appeal held that the settlement was enforceable albeit subject to approval by the WCAB. The court explained that if the WCAB does not approve the settlement, then the settlement would be set aside.
