Ordinarily, an employee’s rights against his or her employer for on-the-job injuries lie solely under the workers’ compensation law—i.e., when the “conditions of compensation” are present, the employer is immune from civil damages liability because workers’ compensation is the injured employee’s “exclusive remedy. Workers’ compensation is basically a “no fault” system of redress for work-related injuries—i.e., benefits are paid to injured employees without proof of employer liability. The statutory scheme is intended to provide a “quick, simple and readily accessible method of claiming and receiving compensation.” [Marsh & McLennan v..

Various statutes impose specified “penalties” for proscribed conduct, either by way of a fixed sum or a doubling or trebling of actual damages. While statutory civil penalties and punitive damages awards both serve to motivate compliance with the law and “punish” wrongdoers, they are distinct legal concepts: Unlike punitive damages, statutory penalties are imposed without regard to motive and require no showing of actual harm or “malicious, wilfullor intentional” conduct; a civil penalty award is entrusted to and set by the Legislature and thus is not left to jury discretion..
