Worker’s Compensation Advisory Council Hosting Public Hearing on December 15

The Worker’s Compensation Advisory Council (WCAC) is seeking suggestions from stakeholders and the public for its next slate of recommended legislative changes.

The Council will host a hybrid public hearing from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2022, using WebEx web conferencing technology and in person at 201 East Washington Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin. In addition, written comments may be submitted through Monday, January 16, 2023.

“Since 1911, a citizen advisory council has played an instrumental part in amending the Wisconsin Worker’s Compensation Act, which has served as a national model for state worker’s compensation programs, and the Council’s work is further supported through additional feedback from the public,” DWD Secretary-designee Amy Pechacek said. “We welcome public engagement at the hearing and through the public comment period. We also greatly appreciate the collaborative work of the Council, which includes equal numbers of employee and employer members who work together for the benefit of our state’s worker’s compensation program.”

Submit Written Comments: Written comments may be submitted to Steve Peters, Chair, Worker’s Compensation Advisory Council, 201 E Washington Avenue, Room C100, Madison, WI 53703, or via email to: WCAdvisoryCouncil@dwd.wisconsin.govThe submission deadline for written comments is Monday, Jan. 16, 2023.
