* July 22, 2014 --  In a decision issued today, the Wisconsin Supreme Court affirmed a 2011 LIRC decision, Asma Masri v. Medical College of Wisconsin, ERD Case No. CR200902766 (LIRC, Aug. 31, 2011), concerning the applicability of the Wisconsin Health Care Workers Protection Act, Wis. Stat. § 146.997.  

 Giving “due weight” deference to LIRC’s decision, the court agreed with LIRC that the HCWPA applies only to employees, a category that does not include interns who do not receive compensation or tangible benefits.

Asma Masri v. LIRC and Medical College of Wisconsin, 2014 WI  81, __ Wis.2d __, __ N.W.2d __ .


* March 20, 2014 -- 2013 Statistics, providing information about appeals to and disposition by the commission of cases in calendar year 2013, are now available at this website.
