Tashay Lenzy v. Does 1-50

Defendant Ralphs Grocery Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment

Hearing: November 13, 2019

Plaintiff was injured by an elevator while working at a Ralphs store. She filed and settled a worker compensation claim. She sued Ralphs in Superior Court; Ralphs moves for summary judgment under workers’ compensation exclusivity of remedy. Cal. Lab Code §3600.

Evidentiary Objections

All evidentiary objections OVERRULED.

Workers Compensation Exclusivity

When the “conditions of compensation” set forth in Cal. Lab Code §3600 are present, workers compensation is an employee’s sole and exclusive remedy for an on-the-job injury. Defendant argues the exclusive remedy rule precludes this action. Plaintiff does not dispute the existence of the WCAB settlement, but claims it was between plaintiff and The Kroger Co., defendant’s parent company (Ralphs is a subsidiary of Kroger). Plaintiff argues Kroger, not defendant Ralphs Grocery Company, was her employer, and Ralphs cannot “piggyback” on its parent company’s settlement payment to avoid liability.

Defendant’s Exhibit E is an “Application for Adjudication of Claim” filed with the WCAB; it identifies plaintiffs’ employer as “Ralphs.” Defendant’s exhibit E at pg. 99. Additionally, the “Order Approving Compromise & Release” issued by the WCAB names “The Kroger Company, dba Ralph’s Grocery Co.” as the employer and settling defendant. Plaintiff’s Exhibit A at pg. 1. The declaration of Kroger’s corporate counsel Nathan Brown states the Kroger Co. does not employ any individuals at the Ralphs where plaintiff was injured.

Plaintiff does not substantively refute defendant’s evidence, instead disputing admissibility. The WCAB documents are admissible public records. Brown’s declaration is based on his personal knowledge of Kroger’s operations. Defendants’ evidence is unrefuted. Plaintiff was paid workers compensation benefits. She is therefore barred from further litigation against Ralphs under the workers compensation exclusivity statute. GRANTED.
