Workers' compensation is a no-fault system of benefits paid by employers to workers who experience job-related injuries or diseases.  The Commission operates the state court system for workers' compensation cases. A case is first tried by an arbitrator, whose decision may be reviewed by a panel of three commissioners. 

Our staff will explain Commission procedures and case status information, but cannot answer specific legal questions regarding a case.  For more information, email us or call us Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Please do not fax questions.)  Se habla español.

Note:  All visitors to the Chicago and Springfield offices must show a valid photo ID.
