Stricter workers’ comp laws struck down in Illinois legislature
Two workers’ compensation reform measures attempting to make the program stricter have failed to pass in Illinois’ Democratic majority legislature, according to a Business Insurance article on May 28.
The proposed measures would necessitate more proof that those seeking workers’ compensation were injured in work-related accidents, as well as reduce the fee schedule for these payments.
The lawmakers introducing these bills and amendments are supported by insurance companies, such as the midwest region of Deerfield-based American Insurance Association (AIA).
Although workers’ compensation law is often subject to political changes, it remains a critical resource for workers who are injured on the job.
