UPDATE FROM GORDON & CENTRACCHIO L.L.C.
On April 13, 2020, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission approved an Emergency Amendment allowing essential workers to obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Amendment creates the rebuttable presumption (assumption) that the workplace was the cause of the petitioner’s COVID-19 transmission.
We join the rest of the Country in offering our profound thanks and appreciation to all essential workers. While you put your lives on the line to support and protect the rest of us, we will fight to ensure that it is you who is protected under the law. Call us if you or a love one has contracted COVID-19 while working for an essential business (grocery store, first responder, medical, pharmacy, gas station, restaurant, education, transportation, funeral, union, etc.…) for a consultation.
