California Labor Code §5000
provides that any contract or agreement, express or implied, made by any employee to waive California Workers’ Compensation benefits, is null and void.  The statute establishes a rule that an employee who is otherwise eligible for California benefits cannot be deemed to have contractually waived those benefits, and an employer who is otherwise liable for California benefits cannot evade liability through contract.
