Case Number: 
2012 IL App (1st) 111220WC
Decision Date: 
August 20, 2012
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co.,WC Div.
Justice: 
STEWART
Holding: 
Vacated and remanded.
Decision of Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission remanding to arbitrator for further proceedings on issue of vocational rehabilitation is interlocutory, and not a final order, regardless of whether remand is for purpose of providing specifics of generalized plan ordered by Commission or for determination of whether rehabilitation should be ordered and regardless of whether remand arises in expedited hearing. Decision required further administrative proceedings, and thus circuit court lacked jurisdiction on review. (McCULLOUGH, HOFFMAN, HUDSON, and HOLDRIDGE, concurring.)
