NYS Workers’ Compensation Board Announces Webinar Wednesdays

The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board has announced that it is offering a new webinar series specifically to employers. The monthly webinars will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. on the following dates: Aug. 5th, Sept. 2nd, Oct. 7th, Nov. 4th, and Dec. 2nd.

During these webinars, the Board’s Advocate for Business will present on the basics of the workers’ compensation system, including insurance types, coverage requirements, and employers’ obligations under the law. Each one-hour presentation will also cover:

  • Who needs coverage and who does not need coverage;
  • How and when to report an injury or illness (including COVID-19);
  • Considerations when hiring independent contractors, laborers, and domestic workers;
  • Lowering premiums; and
  • Penalties and where to go for assistance with them.

Sessions are free, and there will be time at the end of each for questions. Registration is required at http://www.wcb.ny.gov/webinars/. When you select the registration link, you will be taken to a general information page and must select “Register” on the bottom of that page to sign up.
