WCA and NYCOSH Issue a New Report on Uncompensated Wage Loss

Feb 3, 2016 -- Posted by : admin
From Robert Gray regarding the Workers Compensation Alliance press release:


On February 1, 2016 the Workers' Compensation Alliance and the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health released a report showing the stark consequences of on-the-job injury for workers. The report outlines the consequences of the 2007 workers compensation "reforms" for injured workers. Among its conclusions, the report finds that (1) the 2007 "reforms" offered no benefit to low-wage workers; (2) even workers who benefited from the 2007 reforms continue to suffer high rates of uncompensated wage loss; and (3) the workers' compensation system now replaces less than 10% of the lost wages of permanently disabled workers.

The report further concludes that proposals made by the Business Council, some of which are included in the 2016 Executive Budget, would render the workers' compensation virtually meaningless as a source of wage replacement benefits for injured workers.

The report can be found on the WCA web site at:
