Panel rules in favor of injured child welfare worker

The Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission upheld the decision of an arbitrator to award workers' compensation benefits to a child welfare specialist who suffered knee and spine injuries after a fall in her workplace's restroom. The commission's decision turned on undisputed evidence that the welfare worker's accident occurred "in the course of" her employment with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, a key element for a successful workers' compensation claim.

Workers' compensation targeted by Illinois city

Workers' compensation claims are costing the city of Springfield, Illinois a lot of money. Its city manager wants to do something about it. The city has paid some $16 million over the past three years to cover medical bills, final workers' compensation settlements and attorney's fees to city workers injured on the job. Lost wages have been paid as well.
