Illinois Policy Institute says employers should be able to craft their own workers’ compensation
Chicago-based, non-profit, think tank Illinois Policy Institute, in its recently released report titled “Fixing Illinois’ Outdated Workers’ Compensation System”, said Illinois’ current state-run workers’ compensation system “does a poor job of serving the majority of workers” and “prioritizes the financial interests of groups such as lawyers and workers’ compensation doctors over the needs of both workers and employers”.
The institute says that instead of forcing employers to adhere to a standard form of workers’ compensation system – which is considered as one of the costliest in the United States – employers should be allowed to “craft their own agreements around their particular circumstances – rather than forcing all workers and employers to adhere to rigid regulations that often no longer serve their purpose”.
