On page 5, beginning on line 14, after "settlement." strike all material through "settlement" on line 22 and insert "If the agency obtains a settlement over the alleged violation, the agency shall notify the relator that the agency will not commence an action and the settlement shall preclude further claims for the wages and benefits covered by the settlement"

EFFECT:   Modifies the criteria for an agency settlement to preclude further claims by removing the requirements that: (1) the settlement provide 100 percent of any wrongfully withheld wage or benefits, and interest; and (2) payment is received in full prior to the end of the investigation period.
