3rd party refers to an entity other then the employer or the worker.
if the managers are your employer then your only remedy is workers compensation.

Not a 3rd party issue at all...

No third party lawsuit possible in this senario.

I am dealing with a third party lawsuit right now. This isn't one at all.
If a bus driver is driving the bus route and another person ( Don't an employer or a co worker) in another car hits the bus and hurts the driver, that is a third party lawsuit. It can't be a co worker or the employer.
I got injured on my job and had a couple of back surgeries. The first doctor cut my nerve during the first surgery. So my work wants me to let them go after the doctor or let them. They sent me the form for third party election form. I hope this helps explain what it is. I am seeing a lawyer about this on Wednesday.
