Employers Save $45 Million on New York Workers' Compensation Costs

Monday, November 3, 2014

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that employer costs for New York workers’ compensation in New York State will be reduced by a whopping $45 million in 2015.  This was done by lowering the cost to run the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. The reduction in New York workers’ compensation costs to business was accomplished without cutting benefits to seriously injured workers. This is a win-win for employers and workers! “Reducing the cost of doing business in New York has been a top priority for this administration and I’m proud to announce that our reforms to the workers’ compensation system have lowered rates [to employers] for the second straight […]

A not-so-funny thing happened at work today … p3

Saturday, November 1, 2014

We are talking about whether a health care worker who contracts the Ebola virus from a patient could have a viable workers’ compensation claim. At this point, there is no word that anyone who has tested positive has filed a claim, but the example gives us a high-profile, albeit scary, way to talk about work-related illnesses. When we left off, we were going through the two threshold questions used to determine if an illness could be compensable. The first is, “Is the disease ‘occupational’?” Essentially, if the worker contacts the illness on the job, the condition is met. The second question […]

Monday, October 27, 2014

The country’s response to the Ebola outbreak has escalated significantly, even as the 21-day watch periods expire for some health workers and airline passengers exposed to the virus. President Barack Obama has appointed an Ebola czar, more volunteers testing positive for the virus have returned to the country, and the number of cases and fatalities in West Africa continues to climb. On Oct. 25, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website reported more than 10,000 cases and nearly 5,000 deaths. In our last post, we were talking about health care workers in particular and whether they would be eligible […]

A not-so-funny thing happened at work today …

Friday, October 17, 2014

Some jobs are just more dangerous than others. A firefighter is more likely to be at risk of an on-the-job injury than a hair stylist. When firefighters take the job, they know — especially here in New York — that they could be injured or killed when responding to an emergency, even if everyone has taken all the necessary precautions and followed all of the safety protocols. The hair stylist does not face danger on a daily basis. The job may involve razors and scissors and dyes, but stylists are not getting paid to run into burning buildings. They are getting […]

File for Potential 9/11 World Trade Center Workers’ Compensation Benefits by 9/11/14

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP would like to urge you to preserve your right to New York worker’s compensation benefits if you participated in the rescue, recovery and clean-up of the World Trade Center from 9/11/2001 through 9/12/ 2002.  File a WTC-12 form (www.wcb.ny.gov/WTC12) with the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board by 9/11/14. This preserves your right to future medical and lost wage benefits, should you ever need them, if you get sick in the future. For example, if you are diagnosed with a 9/11 related cancer any time after 9/12/2014, you will NOT be able to claim […]

Social Security Disability Fraud, Facebook Privacy and the Manhattan DA… Oh My!

Friday, June 27, 2014

Yesterday’s US Supreme Court decision in Riley v. California, interpreting the Fourth Amendment in the “digital age”, could impact the current Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into allegedly fraudulent Social Security disability claims.   But let’s step back a minute and see where the DA’s investigation and the Social Security Administration’s  responses currently stand. See my prior blog post here on this Social Security disability fraud case regarding the initial arrest of an unscrupulous lawyer (Mr. Raymond Lavalle, Esq.) and his associates (Thomas Hale, in particular) who allegedly ran a decades long Social Security disability scam.  If the allegations are proven (and I have every reason, based […]
