Illinois Facing Proposed Rollback Of Workers' Compensation Law

image15-10.jpg

Wisconsin is not alone. While Wisconsin is facing a proposed dismantling of the basic structure of its incredibly efficient worker's compensation program, based on the Governor's Budget proposal, the workers in Illinois are also facing major legislative problems. As part of a series of articles in ProPublica and NPR, which discuss the overall dwindling of worker's compensation benefits, a recent story discusses the worker's compensation deforms currently proposed in Illinois.

One of the foremost experts on worker's compensation, Professor John Burton, testified at an Illinois legislative hearing on the issue. Of note is that Burton's national research generally shows that whenever and wherever the worker's compensation eligibility standards are tightened the Social Security Disability and Medicare/Medicaid rolls go up in virtual direct proportion. Legislatures should be wary off unintended consequences on the taxpayers of alleged worker's compensation "reforms."
