Statements about workers' compensation

Workers' compensation reform has become a controversial topic in Illinois politics. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner wants to enact standards that will require injured workers to prove that the workplace is the major cause of an injury to qualify for workers' compensation benefits. Democrats oppose reform, saying it will cause injured workers to lose medical coverage and recovery benefits, forcing them to apply for disability payments through Social Security.
