Department of Labor & Indus., 123 Wash. 2d 418, 427, 869 P.2d 14 (1994); Carnation Co. v. Hill, 115 Wash. 2d 184, 187, 796 P.2d 416 (1990). Attorney fees are awarded to the worker whose appeal to the superior or appellate court results in a reversal or modification of the Board decision, as well as to the worker whose right to relief is sustained when the department or employer appeals.*fn4 RCW 51.52.130.
