WHAT THE LAW DOES NOT COVER
New York workers’ compensation law does not provide job protection or health insurance. If your injury prevents you from performing your job, your employer may terminate your employment. You may have other protections, such as rights under a union or employment contract, or other state or federal laws, but the workers’ compensation law does not protect you from losing your job.This law also does not provide health insurance. If you were covered by a company health insurance, and lose your job because of your injury, workers’ compensation does not provide new insurance. It only covers medical treatment for the injuries related to your workers’ compensation claim. Working with an attorney with experience in workers’ compensation will greatly increase your chances of receiving the medical and financial benefits you need.
