How Workers’ Compensation Claims Are Different For Union Workers

Union membership does not prevent a worker from receiving workers’ compensation benefits as mandated by Illinois law. Being in a labor union does not affect your eligibility if you meet the qualifications for workers’ compensation.

It is worth noting that unions have a significant rile in determining the benefits union members receive. By engaging in bargaining agreements and creating labor contracts, a union can secure a wide array of benefits, including workers’ compensation. This way, if you are hurt on the job as a union member, you can review your collective bargaining agreement to determine how to claim your benefits.

Our extensive experience in these legal issues can help you navigate the challenges of collective bargaining agreements and labor contracts. Our lawyers will work with you to confirm what benefits you are eligible for and help you pursue them through both your employer’s insurance and any additional union policies.

Hiring Your Own Attorney Vs. Using A Union-Provided Attorney

When seeking workers’ compensation as an injured union worker, you might have access to attorneys provided by your union. It is possible that you are required to consult with these lawyers first. Our attorneys belive in providing our clients with honesty and transparency in our work. If we feel that a union-provided lawyer can better serve your needs, we will advise you of this so you can do what is best for you. Alternatively, if we believe that you can benefit more from our experienced team of attorneys, we will be sure to help pursue the ideal outcome in your situation.
