New York’s small business men and women are hero-entrepreneurs who make a vital contribution to our economy. Before applying for corporate status, or other business status, people are given very little, if any, information about workers’ compensation and workers’ comp employer penalties for no-insurance.
This often results in terrible, burdensome penalties for no workers compensation insurance against innocent small business owners.
Victims of employer penalties and workers compensation employer penalties are often people who employ nannies and domestics, and people who hire payroll companies, or who use insurance brokers. Often, business owners think that their payroll company or broker has satisfied all their workers comp obligations.
I am proud to have successfully advocated for and represented a great many small business employers through the years, in having their workers comp penalties revoked or reduced.
