This will take effect January 1, 2018, and will be retroactive to all claims regardless of the date of the accident.
We must stop the New York State Workers' Comp Board from slashing worker protections and injury payments.
With your help, we can reach our goal! Please sign the petition and share the link with five of your friends right now: bit.ly/protectinjuredworkersinNY
We demand that the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board withdraw drastic proposals to slash arm, leg and common injury payments; make company doctors mandatory and bestow them with the authority to deny workers' comp to an injured worker who needs it, and illegally override vital democratic checks and balances with the legislature. The Board must focus on strengthening the workers' comp system in New York at a time when workers need it most.
State Legislative is directing WCB (Workers Compensation Board) to come up with new guidelines, which are destructive proposals. It attacks ALL workers, WC doctors and the lawyers that are protecting your rights, against the State.
The WCB want to implement new guidelines, that will:
- Strip the injured workers of protections of due process rights.
- Create an eating frenzy for abusive employers, insurers, and IMEs
We support workers!
We reject these proposals!
We want to stop the slashing worker's protection and injury payments!
URGENT!! WE ALL NEED TO TAKE ACTION NOW
The deadline, for open comments, is OCT 23. Completed/signed postcard petitions will be collected by me, by Oct 18. We urge everyone, to reach out to your contacts to stop this deadly movement by signing the petition to withdraw this horrible proposal, that would cut payments for many common injuries, establish mandatory visits by IME or company Dr's and giving IME's the authority to suspend benefits.
IF this proposal goes thru Congress, the money that is suppose to go to injured workers will be placed in the hands of businesses and insurance co. This is from the WORKERS’ PROTECTION COALITION:
With your help, we've reached thousands of people who care about the wellbeing of injured workers. Now we must stop the NYS Workers' Comp Board from slashing worker protections and injury payments.
