SCAFFOLD, DEMOLITION, ASBESTOS REMOVAL, & CONSTRUCTION LIVES ARE CHEAP IN NYC

The New York Post reports on a proposal that is one of the lowest, most egregious, and even vile things we've seen in more than thirty years fighting for the rights of working men and women in New York.  This is an attempt--that we have to believe must fail--to put a strictly limited money value on the lives of workers injured and killed on construction, asbestos removal, demolition and scaffold work sites. Another way to understand this proposal, is that it would encourage contractors to play fast and loose with safety precautions. Every New Yorker must fight this proposal and the people who so cheaply value the lives of our construction workers.   

HARD HATS, CONSTRUCTION, DEMOLITION & SCAFFOLD WORKERS DESERVE BETTER

As this New York Post article will show, construction, demolition, and scaffold workers continue to be forced to work in unsafe conditions for illegally low wages.  New York's men and women in construction risk their lives and health on behalf of the city's economy, and deserve a lot better. There are too many scaffold accidents, construction hole collapses--too many broken and fractured backs and knees and shoulders. Too many deaths. It's time for New York to come to the aid of our construction, demolition, asbestos removal, and scaffold workers!

The problem with "independent" medical exams

In New York, injured workers may choose their own treating physicians - in fact, employers can face criminal action if they interfere with this right. However, employers and insurance companies have an opportunity to undermine the doctor's opinion and damage the workers' claim for damages: the independent medical exam, or IME.

Am I an employee or independent contractor?

You may be in pain and feeling financial strain over medical bills or even stress about returning to work after sustaining a work injury. However, the process can complicate further if your employer and their insurer claim you are not an employee when you thought you were.
