A 2020 report by the New School details how insurance companies have profited from New York Workers’ Compensation while injured workers suffer. Connors & Ferris strives to ensure that New York State workers have the legal protection they need and deserve in the event of a workplace injury.
While over 200,000 workers are injured annually in New York State, New York ranks 29th in maximum benefit level for injured workers, with 76 percent of employers paying less than $5,000 in Workers’ Compensation insurance premiums per year.
Join us in these efforts to protect our workers by sending a letter which takes ~2 minutes to our Governor, your Assembly Member, and State Senator by clicking this link https://www.protectinjurednewyorkers.org/ and complete the prefilled letter. The prewritten but editable message asks our elected officials to pass regulations that will improve and strengthen the Workers’ Compensation rights and benefits for injured workers.
We know that legislators are paying attention to the letters they receive. Working New Yorkers are the backbone of New York’s economy.
Together, let’s take action and help injured workers!
