Attention Business Owners – Another Reason Why Businesses Are Leaving Illinois

The Third Appellate District Court in Illinois has found that an employee was entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for a wrist fracture as a result of a fall on or near her residence. The employee fell on a snowy sidewalk going to a van after eating her lunch at her own home. The van was owned by her employer who let her take it home. Case is sad but true. No wonder no one wants to be in business in Illinois. Private and public employers who let employees take vehicles home should look at this case. It would take the Illinois Legislature or the Illinois Supreme Court to correct this result in the future. Don’t bet on it! Milynarczyk v. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission
