Workers' Compensation benefits required in New York State are sold to employers by private insurance companies. These very companies and your employer are also the ones who will first decide if the injury or illness was work related. These companies could save money if they dispute the claim.
If a claim is disputed or denied the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will evaluate the claim.
It is also illegal for a company to fire or harass an employee who files for Workers’ Compensation so do not be afraid to take advantage of your rights.
Workers’ Compensation is an insurance policy paid for by your employer, not an entitlement program. You and every employee who works in the State of New York have paid in for years in the event that somebody gets hurt or sick on the job.
