Nassau Lawyer Speaks on New York Workers' Compensation Reform BillThursday, March 8, 2007
I was interviewed the other day by WorkersComp Central, a national on-line newspaper dedicated to workers’ compensation issues, on the impact of the new Spitzer New York Workers’ Comp Reform Bill. This bill passed both the Senate and the Assembly unanimously yesterday and is expected to be signed by Governor Spitzer next Tuesday. The new law takes effect July 1, 2007, and the changes are transformative – to say the least. For attorneys who have practiced law in this administrative and technical forum many years, the changes will test our ability to adapt to radically new benefit structure. It should be interesting!
