State Employees & Workers’ Comp

Received this morning: this link to the Belleville News series of investigative reports on state employee’s Workers’ Compensation claims. The latest, published April 20, details the paper’s attempts to obtain information regarding successful claims.

Recent and upcoming opinions delivered by the Attorney General’s Public Access Counselor that pertain to Workers’ Comp-related Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests may have implications for our own efforts to understand Worker’s Comp in DeKalb better.

Meanwhile, here is a copy of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act (big PDF file!).
