The LIRC serves as a higher authority appeal board, reviews appeals from workers’ compensation cases, unemployment insurance cases, crime victims’ compensation cases, and tort victims’ compensation cases. The LIRC also hears and determines objections to prevailing wage determinations and challenges to determinations by public bodies to enter into project labor agreements.
