The Attack on the Exclusive Remedy and the See's Candy Case 

The "grand bargain" on which the Workers' Compensation system is premised is under attack.  Recent lawsuits have challenged the premise that an injured worker is entitled to benefits regardless of employer liability in exchange for the employer's protection from personal injury lawsuits. We'll use the facts and law in the See's Candy case in California as the basis of a detailed analysis of the nationwide attack on the Exclusive Remedy Provisions in Workers Compensation and the exposure for all employers if the See's case is successful.
