- Your employer may be required to pay you two-thirds of your average weekly wage for any lost time related to your worker’s compensation claim.

- Workers’ compensation in Illinois is a “no-fault” system. This means that you do not have to prove that your employer was negligent.
- Repetitive trauma cases, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, are covered under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act.
If you are not able to return to your old job as a result of your work related injuries, your employer has to assist you in finding a new job or pay you a portion of your lost income.
