Featured Employment Case
A Department of Health Services investigator sued his superiors for wrongful termination, violation of whistleblower statute, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The Superior Court sustained a defense demurrer based on exclusivity provisions of workers’ compensation law, and the investigator appealed. The Court of Appeal affirmed in part and reversed in part, and the Supreme Court granted review, superseding opinion of the Court of Appeal. The Supreme Court held that: (1) claim under “whistleblower” protection statute for damages arising from termination of employment of investigator was not barred by exclusive remedy provisions of workers’ compensation law, despite allegations of physical injury suffered by investigator; (2) investigator could not maintain action for breach of contract or breach of implied covenant of good faith fair dealing; and (3) to extent that state employee’s claim against supervisors for intentional infliction of emotional distress alleged distinct cause of action, not dependent upon violation of express statute or fundamental policy, claim was barred by worker’s compensation exclusivity provisions. The Court explained that exclusive remedy provisions of workers’ compensation law are not applicable under certain circumstances, sometimes identified as conduct where employer or insurer steps out of their proper roles, or as conduct of employer having “questionable” relationship to employment, which may be essentially defined as not stemming from risk reasonably encompassed within compensation bargain. Both act of termination of employee and acts leading up to termination necessarily arise out of and during and “in the course of the employment,” within the meaning of exclusive remedy provisions of workers’ compensation law. Fact that termination and acts leading up to termination arises out of and during course of employment does not resolve issue of whether exclusive remedy provisions of workers’ compensation law act are bar to all causes of action arising from discharge; rather, where injury is result of conduct, whether in form of discharge or otherwise, not seen as reasonably coming within compensation bargain, separate civil action may lie. Claim under “whistleblower” protection statute for damages arising from termination of employment of investigator for Department of Health Services was not barred by exclusive remedy provisions of workers’ compensation law, despite allegations of physical injury suffered by investigator; “whistleblower statute”, as “more specific” provision, controlled over compensation law
