New York Workers’ Compensation Changes in 2017
Dec 29 17
Workers’ compensation is one area of law that’s constantly adapting to the society around it. Some of the changes it goes through are for the better, while others are challenged by both injured workers and the attorneys that represent them. In this episode of Workers Comp Matters, host Alan Pierce talks to Michael Gruber about the controversial changes to New York’s workers’ comp rules that were put into place earlier this year. They explain the budget changes that lead to the shift in impairment guidelines, the secrecy of the decision process, and the resulting backlash. They also discuss what national workers’ comp issues will likely draw the most attention in 2018 including marijuana, opioids, and immigration. Michael Gruber, a partner at Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP, handles workers compensation cases for the firm. Special thanks to our sponsors, Casepacer and PInow.
