In regards to a civil action against a co worker

Labor Code Section 3601(a) provides that worker’s compensation benefits are the sole remedy for a work injury and that a civil claim cannot be pursued against the co-worker. Co-employees acting within the scope of their employment are generally immunized from liability for injuries covered by the workers’ compensation law.
