I am very proud to report that I have recently had two more successes in defending uninsured employers against workers' compensation penalties. The first uninsured employer owns a small deli, and in all innocence and good faith neglected to buy a workers' compensation insurance policy. I succeeded in having his penalty COMPLETELY RESCINDED.
As the owner of a small business, it gives me great satisfaction to fight for contractors and other small businesses who face burdensome, and even overwhelming, workers' compensation penalties for not having insurance--penalties the state hits you with even though in my experience you are so often innocent of any deliberate wrongdoing. That is why I take the time to share with you articles that you may find of use. I hope you find the article helpful, and of course, I'm always here to discuss your workers' compensation penalty.
I am proud to announce another victory in my quest to help small business owners who have been hit with penalties by the Workers' Compensation Board.
Cada propietario de una pequeña empresa en Nueva York sabe lo difícil que es permanecer vivo en una de las ciudades más competitivas del país. Lo último que necesita es una multa ridícula de la junta de compensación de trabajadores encima.
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.
Los propietarios de pequeñas empresas en Nueva York saben muy bien las presiones de tratar de obtener ganancias en uno de los estados más competitivos en los Estados Unidos. Usted no necesita el estrés de recibir una Notificación de Penalidad o un Gravamen de Sentencia de la Corte Suprema de Nueva York porque usted no tenía seguro de compensación de trabajadores.
Small business owners in New York know all-too-well the pressures of trying to earn a profit in one of America's most competitive states. You don't need the stress of receiving a Notice of Penalty or a Judgment Lien from New York Supreme court because you did not have a workers' compensation policy.
The owner of a small import-export company contacted me because the Worker's Compensation Board was penalizing him nearly $500,000.00, because the state claimed that the employer did not have workers' compensation insurance, even though he ran a safe workplace that had never had an accident. I appealed that penalty, and after several conversations with the uninsured employers unit, I am very gratified to say that the penalty was entirely rescinded.
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.
