You cannot sue your employer. Workers’ compensation is a system to replace lawsuits. Workers’ compensation was invented because they did not want people to be able to sue their employers. They felt that it would be bad for business for people to sue their employers, and that it would affect the economy harmfully for people to bring lawsuits against their employers. So they invented workers’ compensation, which is a system of wage replacement benefits and medical benefits, in exchange for a lawsuit system.
