Governor Cuomo announced that New York workers compensation rates are decreasing for the first time since 2008, according to an article on the NY Daily News website. According to Cuomo, the 1.2% decrease for the upcoming year will aid businesses in creating jobs and help to get the state’s economy back on track.

In the same article, the President of the New York State AFL-CIO, Mario Cilento said, “the reform led to the indexation of the benefit at two-thirds of the state’s average weekly wage so that never again would injured workers suffer an erosion of their benefits through inflation.” If you have a Long Island, Queens, Nassau County, or Suffolk County NY workers compensation case, call “The Fiercest” lawyer to discuss your case and represent you.
