2011 Changes to Illinois Workers’ Compensation Laws

In the spring of 2011, Illinois lawmakers changed the state’s workers’ compensation laws. Below are the most notable changes, which affect injuries occurring on September 1, 2011, and after. If your injury occurred before September 1, 2011, none of these new rules will impact you.

Overall, the new law favors employers – by reducing the cost of providing benefits – and restricts the benefits available to injured employees. These changes won’t affect cases that are ongoing. Again, they will likely only affect injuries occurring on September 1, 2011, and after.

If you have any questions about these changes or need to speak with an attorney about an Illinois workers’ compensation claim, please feel free to contact us for a no cost, confidential consultation.
