LIRC's Mission

The mission of Wisconsin’s Labor and Industry Review Commission (LIRC) is the independent and impartial resolution of unemployment insurance, workers compensation, and equal rights appeals.

In carrying out this mission, LIRC seeks to ensure that:

"Every person, claimant, employer, and insurance carrier, stands equal before the Commission, and it is the duty of the Commission to make investigations, find the facts according to the weight of the evidence, and apply the law fairly and justly without regard to the consequences to particular parties."
