Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner seeks workers' compensation reform

Anyone who has suffered a serious injury knows of the uncertainty that it can create for a person and his or her family. Medical bills can quickly become overwhelming, and a person may have to attempt to manage these bills while experiencing a loss of wages because of missed work during the period of recovery. People who are injured at work, however, may be able to see some relief as a result of the workers' compensation insurance coverage that Illinois employers are required to provide for their employees. These programs could see some changes as Gov. Bruce Rauner is calling for reforms of state requirements.

Workers' compensation claims result from overheated workplace

For the past few months, people in Illinois and across the country have been focused on cold weather and keeping the roadways clear for safe travel. Now that spring is on the horizon, more employers will likely be concerned about keeping their workers cool enough during the summer, especially when working in an area that has poor air circulation. Workers who are injured or become ill as a result of high temperatures might qualify for workers' compensation benefits.
