    Default After an Employee Comes Back to Work Full Time, Can They Sue the Employer

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: New Jersey
    An employee fell off of ladder two years ago and injured himself. He was out on Workers Comp for one year and then a year ago got cleared back for work. He is back at work, working a 40 hour work week. He has some discomfort due to his injury but can work and his job was changed a bit to accommodate that.

    Can the employee sue for injuries? If yes, and the Workers Comp Insurance pays up to the limit, can the employee go after the employer directly if there was no negligence on the employers part for the injury?

    Thank you

    With VERY rare exceptions, and nothing in your post suggests that those exceptions exist here, No, the employee cannot sue the employer. Workers comp is his sole remedy.
