 October 19, 2015

The Commission announced today, October 19, 2015, that in order to comply with Section 14  of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act, the dockets of all existing downstate arbitrators will be reassigned to another arbitrator effective January 1, 2016.  Due to the necessity of sending out notices, the IWCC website will begin to list the name of the new arbitrator well in advance of the January 1, 2016 docket transfer. Please be aware that these cases are still assigned to the original arbitrator. If you have settlement contracts or motions, including 19(b)s,  they should be directed to the arbitrator whose docket the case has been on and not the new arbitrator taking over in 2016. All cases will be transferred on January 1st, including those cases where a decision has been reached on a 19(b). The 19(b) cases will not follow the current arbitrator to their new assignment but will stay in the docket where it was originally assigned.
