The Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development (IVAC) will hold their Business Breakfast Seminar on Wednesday, June 13th @ 7:15 a.m. at Mario’s Maples in Peru. The focus of the seminar will be “Workers' Compensation Compliance”.
The Insurance Compliance Division of the Workers’ Compensation Commission is responsible for enforcing the mandatory insurance provisions of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. Most of the nearly 400,000 Illinois employers carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. However, for those employers who do not comply, it is our responsibility to bring these uninsured employers into compliance.
Join the discussion with Gloria Jimenez from Illinois Workman's Compensation Commission as she shares information and sheds light on the following topics:
- Workers compensation insurance, why it’s important
- Who is required to have workers’ compensation insurance?
- Consequences of not having workers’ compensation insurance
- Why its good business practice to have insurance?
- How the state enforces workers’ compensation statute
