Dan’s Workers’ Comp Tip of the Month
The following employees who work in New York State are NOT covered by “regular” New York State Workers’ Compensation:
1. New York City uniformed fire, sanitation and police.
2. New York City teachers.
3. Federal Government employees
4. Electricians in Local 3
In each case listed above, these occupations are “exempted” out of the regular NYS Workers’ Comp system and have their own internal system or a different law that applies.
Everyone else – most employees- are covered by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law if injured at work.
