New LIRC Commissioner

In 2019, Wisconsin has a new Commissioner for workers' compensation decisions.  Governor Evers appointed Attorney Michael Gillick to serve a six-year term on the Labor and Industry Review Commission.  Prior to his appointment, Attorney Gillick represented injured workers, earning a stellar reputation for his dedication towards fairness and justice.  Gillick is the new chairperson of the Commission.

For those that are unware, the Labor and Industry Review Commission (LIRC) is an independent body of three political appointees that rule on worker's compensation, unemployment, and equal rights appeals. In general, cases are litigated in front of administrative law judges and then the appeal is to LIRC, who have a virtual de novo review. The appeal from LIRC is direct to circuit court, which has a very deferential standard and will uphold the LIRC decision if there is any "credible and substantial evidence." Barring a legal issue, the circuit court upholds the factual and credibility findings of LIRC.
