The Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission issued several updates regarding its arbitrators and commissioners in the last week. Here is a summary of the announcements:
On 11/7/11, Governor Quinn announced Nancy Lindsay's appointment as an IWCC arbitrator and Ruth White's appointment as an IWCC commissioner.
Nancy Lindsay served as a commissioner since 2006 and was most recently the employer representative on Panel B. As an arbitrator, her hearing sites will be Springfield and Quincy.
Ruth White served as an arbitrator for over 30 years, and she was recently reappointed by Governor Quinn to a one year term. She will now serve as the employer representative commissioner on Panel B.
Arbitrator Jeffrey E. Tobin was recently appointed to the Seventh Judicial Circuit for the Jacksonville area, and he will no longer hear workers' compensation cases. He served as an IWCC arbitrator since 2004, and he was recently reappointed by Governor Quinn to a two year term.
The IWCC posted the 2011 coverage schedules for the former arbitrators' calls, and the 2012 arbitrators' schedules are also available at this time.
