Suing my employer
I work for dominos pizza and one of my
responsibilities is washing dishes and after
we are done washing them we have to put them
into a sanitizer solution and sometimes it
burn your hands If you don’t wash them after
you put and took out the dishes from the
sanitizer and today I looked at the label and
it said that one should wear gloves when
handling it and they are not provided by
dominos we just wash them with bare hands so
my question could I sue them for that? And
seek financial compensation?

How badly burned are you? Have you suffered long lasting disability or disfigurement? Have you incurred thousands of dollars in out of pocket medical costs? The law only provides compensation for actual injuries and costs, in an amount equivalent to the injuries or costs. If, as we hope, you have not been badly injured or incurred large medical bills, there is no point in thinking about suing: you'd spend more on the lawsuit than you would get back.
