Chamber urges Members to participate in Workers’ Compensation Coalition
New York State has the third highest workers’ comp premiums in the country, and since reforms to the system made just a few years ago, these costs have increased by approximately 40%. Employers across the Southern Tier are in dire need of some relief!
Many of you are well aware that the Chamber has been actively pursuing Workers’ Compensation reform in New York State for 2017. We have seen progress with our local elected officials, as well as legislators state wide, and believe the time for workers’ comp reform is now.
We need the help of the business community in the Southern Tier to continue this fight and urge lawmakers to make the reforms that are needed.
