Did the Eighth Judicial District err in finding that the exclusive remedy provisions of the Wrongful Discharge from Employment Act (“WDEA”) do not apply to the relationship between a business and an individual before the individual’s first day at work?
This question is of particular importance because the WDEA does not specifically address exactly when an individual becomes an “employee” subject to the exclusive remedy provisions of the WDEA.
