Georgia Workers Rights – Employment Lawsuit
If you have been involved in a workplace accident, you may wonder whether you have the right to sue your employer. You were hurt at work, so it would stand to reason that you should be allowed to sue your employer, right? Unfortunately, in most instances, the answer to that question is no. Under Georgia law, if you have been involved in a workplace accident, you are not permitted to sue your employer. This being the case, the workers’ compensation system (i.e. filing a workers’ compensation claim) is your exclusive remedy against your employer. Having said that, the workers’ compensation system is beneficial to employees in that they do not have to file a lawsuit against their employer – a process which can take years – and that employees do not have to prove that their employer was at fault for their injuries in order to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
