TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF OCTOBER 4, 2018

 

COMMITTEE ON JUDICIARY

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to settle the Workers’ Compensation Claim of Tia Schrean vs. MWRDGC, Claim 10 WC 41596, Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC), in the sum of $33,236.00, Account 901-30000-601090 (Deferred from the September 20, 2018 Board Meeting)

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

In 2008, Tia Schrean was a Senior Diversity Officer at the MOBA Building.  On October 15, 2008, she sustained injuries to her lower back.  Ms. Schrean was initially seen in the emergency room on October 15, 2008.  She was initially treated conservatively with medications and physical therapy. She did eventually undergo a procedure on her lower back on June 16, 2015.    

 

Ms. Schrean was not paid any lost time benefits.  A total of $4,317.62 was paid in medical benefits

 

Ms. Schrean filed an Application of Adjustment of Claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) through her counsel.  Subject to the approval of the IWCC, this case can now be settled for $33,236.00, representing approximately 10% person as a whole. This settlement will close out future lost time benefits, as well as any future medical benefits associated with this injury.

 

The Director of Human Resources believes this settlement is in the best interest of the District and requests payment of that sum be approved and she be authorized to execute such documents as may be necessary to effect the settlement.

 

Requested, Beverly K. Sanders, Director of Human Resources, BKS:RAJ:RG

Respectfully Submitted, Mariyana T. Spyropoulos, Chairman Committee on Judiciary

Disposition of this agenda item will be documented in the official Regular Board Meeting Minutes of the Board of Commissioners for October 04, 2018
