Missouri Governor Appoints New Chairman of the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission

I am very pleased to report that Missouri Gov. Mike Parson has appointed State Representative Robert Cornejo (Republican, St. Peters) to become the new Chairman of the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission, effective today. I’ve been told that Rep. Cornejo has resigned from the Missouri House of Representatives and will be sworn in as the new Chairman this week, or early next week at the latest.

Here is the formal announcement and details related to the new Chair of the LIRC:


Once the Commission begins issuing opinions with the new Chairman I will update you regarding same. If you want to discuss the implications of this new appointment, and how this could impact workers compensation law in Missouri, please let me know.
