The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission announced a suspension of business to limit the effect of the COVID-19 virus. This suspension of operations is in effect until 3/31/2020 when the situation will be re-evaluated. Here is the link to the Commission’s announcement:
Unfortunately, no hearings nor docket calls will take place during this period. In order to comply with the order of Governor Pritzker, the law firm will not be traveling to the union halls for interviewing at least through the end of March. However, your Katz Friedman lawyers are working hard for you and remain available to take telephone calls. Our office is open with a reduced non-lawyer staff to insure we make progress on each and every case.
