No Workers Compensation Exclusivity for Employers that Fail to Obtain Comp Insurance
The Missouri Court of Appeals for the Western District, in Lewis v. Gilmore, finds:
Nothing in the Workers' Compensation Act prohibits an employee or his dependents from recovering workers' compensation from one employer and tort damages from another employer who failed to secure workers' compensation insurances for its employees. In fact, the plain language of section 287.280.1 allows it.
