STATE OF THE SYSTEM White Paper 2016

In late 2016, we wrote Workers’ Compensation in New York State: State of the System 2016, the fourth White Paper in the series (following 2006, 2008 and 2014) and sixth overall (we wrote topic-specific white papers in 2010 and 2012). The 2016 White Paper reported that “workers face increasing obstacles in accessing benefits due to variety of Board procedures.” It also reported “that while the 2007 reform legislation increased temporary disability and schedule loss awards for high-wage workers, it did not do so for low-wage workers. The 2007 legislation also caused an unprecedented escalation in uncompensated wage loss for permanently disabled workers throughout the wage spectrum.”
