Illinois Employment Litigation Year In Review – 2015 (Summary of 2015)

In 2015, the appellate court issued 15 published decisions and 86 unpublished Rule 23 Orders. The Illinois Supreme Court issued two decisions, one involving appeal bonds in the context of the Illinois State Treasurer as custodian of the Injured Workers’ Benefit Fund and a second involving an exclusive remedy provision defense raised in a civil personal injury case (defending an asbestos claim filed against an employer long after the expiration of the statute of repose), rather than a case arising directly under the Act. A second petition for leave to appeal was filed, but denied (RG Constr. Services v. Illinois Workers’ Compensation Comm’n, 2014 IL App (1st) 132137WC (medical records admissible into evidence despite containing opinions)).
