The widow of Southland man Keith Valli, 62, killed in the Pike River mine disaster, will receive $10,000 following the resolution of an employment dispute her husband had with his former employer Solid Energy.
The Employment Relations Authority said Valli was unjustifiably dismissed from an opencast Southland coalmine in 2008.
Valli, 62, was the oldest of the 29 men killed after a series of explosions rocked the Pike River coalmine from November 19, 2010.
