Four Attorneys Published in SIU Law Journal’s “Survey of Law”


Debra Stegall, Emily Perkins, Brad Elward and Dana Hughes were recently published in the Southern Illinois University Law Journal's annual "Hiram H. Lesar Survey of Illinois Law" edition.

In their article entitled "Survey of Illinois Law: Employment Law," Stegall and Perkins discussed twenty-three employment-related Illinois cases. The specific employment topics discussed included: retaliatory discharge, arbitration, labor, schools, unemployment benefits, and pension and fringe benefits.

Brad Elward and Dana Hughes authored "Survey of Illinois Law: Workers' Compensation," which discussed enforcement issues in workers' compensation cases following an award of benefits and judgment interest rates. The latter has become a hot issue in Illinois, as the petitioner's bar pushes for application of a nine percent judgment interest rate.
