Better for Workers – Better for Business: News from the New York State Workers’ Comp Board

In this timely presentation, Joseph Cavalcante and Neil Gilberg from the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will provide updates on programs administered by the Board, including the new Paid Family Leave Act and Code Rule 60. The Paid Family Leave Act provides both guaranteed leave and income replacement benefits for employees who must take time to care for close family members. Code Rule 60 mandates discounts to NYS employers for taking certain workplace initiatives, benefiting both employee safety and the company bottom line. Joe and Neil will also explain the Board’s dual role as an advocate for both workers and management.
