Albany Bill: A3671/S845 To Gurantee Every Injured Worker a Hearing

Apr 8, 2021


New York State injured workers are not guaranteed a hearing by the Workers Comp Board, making it hard for them to receive benefits.  Bill A3671/S845 sponsored by Assembly Woman Pamela Hunter and NYS Senator Andrew Gounardes would require a hearing for every case.   The bills are currently in committee in both the NYS Assembly and the NYS Senate respectively.

Specifically from S845:


The purpose of this bill is to ensure that injured workers receive
adequate due process and access to benefits.


Section 1: Amends subdivision 1 of section 20 of the workers' compen-
sation law to require the Workers' Compensation Board to hold at least
one hearing for every claim.

Both bills can be viewed in their entirety from the links below.
