The Breakthrough Victory That Backed Injured Workers

Among the many Illinois laws regulating workers’ compensation is a law restricting employers from retaliating against injured workers. An employer cannot demote or terminate an employee simply because they file for or receive workers’ compensation. However, what about an employee receiving workers’ compensation who has been terminated for some other reason? Last year the Illinois Supreme Court answered this question, a milestone decision which has had a positive impact on injured workers fight for benefits.

Navigating the Language of Workers' Compensation

For employees who have been injured on the job, understanding their rights under worker compensation laws can be daunting. Simply filing a claim involves a seemingly ever-changing tangle of rules and red-tape. Too often, a worker in real need of medical help never receives assistance because they were unable to understand the procedures or gave up due to frustration. And sadly, matters are growing increasingly complicated as more states adopt new legislation that further limits the rights of employees. More, now than ever, workers find that the best way to ensure fair treatment is to utilize the services of a workers’ compensation attorney. But workers can also improve their position by understanding a few of the commonly used terms that may appear when pursuing benefits.
