Almost one hundred years ago, on May 3, 1911, Wisconsin Gov. Francis E. McGovern (1911-15) signed America’s first constitutional workers’ compensation law. Wisconsin beat New York in the workers’ compensation race only because the law enacted by the Empire State in 1910 was found unconstitutional.

The 100th anniversary of workers’ compensation will not pass unnoticed. The Workers’ Compensation Centennial Commission (WCCC) was formed earlier this year to celebrate this milestone and to be a resource for those interested in the evolution of workers’ compensation in this country.
