Very gratified to announce that we have had a very favorable response to our appeal to the Workers’ Compensation Board on a penalty against our client, a small business owner in Queens.
Through an innocent mistake, our client was uninsured for workers’ compensation. The state penalized him more than $31,000.00. After I wrote an appeal, the state forgave MORE THAN THIRTY-THOUSAND DOLLARS, reducing the penalty to only $1,000.00.
As a small business owner myself, I understand the pressures and stresses that small businesses face, and it’s a privilege to be able to succeed in reducing excessive state workers’ compensation penalties.
