Governor Walker's Recent Budget Proposal Would Have Eliminated Independent Appellate Body
Wisconsin Attorney Victor J. Forberger has a very well-written article in the Wisconsin Bar Association's Labor and Employment Blog about the impact a recent budget proposal would have had that called for the elimination of the Labor and Industry Review Commission (LIRC), the current independent appellate body that hears appeals in unemployment compensation, equal rights division (employment discrimination), and worker's compensation cases. The results, needless to say, would have been devastating and many people, even legislators, do not know about these proposed changes and their impact on Wisconsin employees and residents. Definitely worth a read!
