Employers in New York are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for all employees. This insurance provides necessary benefits in the event of a worker injury, so the state takes it very seriously when employers fail to maintain proper coverage. If you are facing civil or criminal action from the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, it is important to get the right legal help.
At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we defend contractors and other employers against the full range of offenses under New York workers’ compensation law, including:
- Intentional misrepresentation, which may include misclassifying employees as independent contractors, failing to report wages of undocumented workers or paying employees “off-the-books”
- Failure to secure coverage
- Subsequent failure to secure coverage
- Failure to maintain accurate payroll records
