Quinn Signs Workers Comp Bill Into Law

On May 20, 2013, we reported on House Bill 3390, a workers' compensation bill which would provide some sweeping changes to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act and result in higher costs for local governments. 
After passing both the Illinois Senate and House, Governor Quinn signed the bill into law on June 28, 2013.   The law will mean higher costs for local governments as it increases the scope of penalties that may be awarded to a claimant and increases the minimum interest to be accrued while a case is pending on appeal.  You can read more about the changes in our March blog post.
