Monday, March 30, 2009

I’ll be giving my annual New York Workers’ Compensation Law lecture to the St. John’s Law School Labor Relations and Employment Law Society this Wednesday, April 1, 2009 at 6:30 PM.  My friend David L. Gregory, the Dorothy Day Professor of Law, has asked me to speak on "real world" workers’ comp issues to his students for over ten years now.  Just a few weeks ago,  NY AFL-CIO President Denis Hughes spoke to the same students on the "Future of Labor".  I am in good company. Given the ongoing implementation of the 2007 New York Workers’ Compensation Reform laws, which included an increase […]

Congratulations President Obama: Now Please Fix ERISA Disability Claims Law

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

First and foremost, congratulations to our new President – Barack Obama.  His historic election will forever change the way opportunity and entitlement are viewed in the United States.  He has tremendous challenges before him, but with our support and shared sacrifice, perhaps we can right this dangerously leaky ship we call America.  Godspeed, Mr. President. In the midst of this country’s many problems, and on Inauguration Day especially, perhaps it seems a bit parochial to ask the new President to consider fixing the Employee Retirement and Income Security Act (ERISA).  However, since the stated goal of the New York Disability Law Blog is to provide […]

McCauley v. First Unum: A Second Circuit New Year's Gift to NY Long Term Disability Lawyers

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Actually, the scathing Second Circuit decision in McCauley v. First Unum Life Ins. Co., 2008 U.S. App. LEXIS 26094 (2nd Cir., Dec. 24, 2008) came down this past Christmas Eve. But why quibble with form over substance when heralding this ground-breaking, pro-claimant decision interpreting the Supreme Court’s recent decision in  MetLife v. Glenn.  McCauley, if followed by other circuits, has the potential to impact all claimant’s with ERISA long term disability denials throughout the country.  If you don’t think Unum was "taken behind the barn",  just read this from the Court in McCauley: "First Unum is no stranger to the courts, where its conduct has drawn biting criticism from […]

Wal-mart Now Under Criminal Investigation by Nassau DA Kathleen Rice for Worker Stampede Death

Monday, December 15, 2008

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice must have been reading the New York Disability Law Blog recently when we were the first to call for a criminal probe of Walmart’s role in causing the death of it’s employee, Jdimytai Damour.  As reported in Newsday, this aggressive prosecutor is willing to use the power of her office to place a bright light on worker safety AND employer responsibility.  She deserves the thanks of all working men and women in the New York area.  It’s not every day that a public official is willing to stand up to Wal-mart. Rather than see the fact’s of […]

New York Workers' Compensation Law Will Prevent Lawyer from Suing Wal-Mart Directly for Negligence

Friday, December 5, 2008

It has now been one week since the sad death of Walmart worker Jdimytai Damour, and of course, this being New York,  the lawsuits are already flying.  One attorney has filed a lawsuit for the family against Walmart in the Bronx (where else!) claiming Walmart was "careless, reckless and negligent".  In my opinion, the direct lawsuit against Walmart for negligence will be dismissed promptly.  Mr. Damour’s family cannot sue Walmart directly due to the "exclusive remedy" provisions of the Workers’ Compensation Law.  Filing a negligence lawsuit directly against Walmart probably had more to do with the attorney getting his name in the […]

Walmart Criminally Responsible for "Door-Buster" Sale Worker Death?

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Photos courtesy of Newsday In the wake of yesterday’s Black Friday Walmart tragedy,  one’s first reaction might be to blame the alleged "savages" who trampled the innocent Walmart worker. However, in reality, it was Walmart’s greed and disregard for it’s own workers’ safety that caused the preventable death of Jdimytai Damour.  New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo should launch an immediate criminal investigation against Walmart.  The days of government "looking the other way" while worker safety is ignored must come to an end. Walmart had a calculated plan to create a shoppers’  "feeding frenzy" between 5 and 11 a.m. yesterday during it’s "blitz", "door-buster" […]
