Just released……effective next Friday, May 21st the NY Workers' Comp Board will be cancelling hearings throughout the state on Fridays. Why? It's part of the furlough plan being put in place to help with the state budget problems.
The Workers' Comp Board believes they should be exempt from the NY state furlough plan because its funded by assessments against insurance carriers. Want to show your support and help try to keep Friday hearings? Call 877-255-9417 to contact the Governor, your State Senator and Assemblyperson — hopefully this will make a difference.
