IWBA CALL TO ACTION!
One of the primary agenda items for New York’s business and insurance lobby in 2017 is the reduction and/or elimination of so-called schedule loss of use awards in workers’ compensation. Various reasons have been advanced as to why this goal is purportedly laudable. Please see the attached memorandum that corrects several common misconceptions regarding schedule loss of use awards, associated costs, and the compensation process itself, that have been perpetuated by interest groups adverse to the rights of New York’s permanently disabled workers.
