H&W Publishes White Paper on Coronavirus and New York Workers' Compensation
Many of our clients have had questions regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and whether the contracture of COVID-19 by an employee is compensable in New York State. Yesterday, we published a white paper that provides an analysis of relevant case law and Board decisions to assist in determining whether or not to controvert a claim for COVID-19, or whether, once controverted, a claim is likely to be established or disallowed. Our paper also provides recommendations should you receive a such a claim, and links for instruction on preventative measures.
Our white paper is available for download here. For any questions or concerns on this topic, please do not hesitate to contact our partners Melanie M. Wojcik at (716) 854-1539 or David L. Snyder at (585) 568-8314.
