What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation is insurance that provides cash benefits and/or medical care for workers who are injured or become ill as a direct result of their job.

Employers pay for this insurance, and shall not require the employee to contribute to the cost of compensation. Weekly cash benefits and medical care are paid by the employer’s insurance carrier, as directed by the Workers’ Compensation Board. The Workers’ Compensation Board is a New York State agency that processes the claims.

A claim is paid if the employer or insurance carrier agrees that the injury or illness is work-related. If the employer or insurance carrier disputes the claim, no cash benefits are paid until the workers’ compensation law judge decides who is right.

What To Do If You Are Injured On The Job

If you are injured on the job, you must follow these simple steps:


    first aid or other necessary medical treatment as soon as possible. The treating health care provider must be authorized by the Workers’ Compensation Board, except in an emergency situation. The cost of necessary medical services is paid by your employer or your employer’s insurance carrier, if the case is not disputed.


    your supervisor about the injury and the way in which it occurred, as soon as possible. An injured employee who fails to inform his or her employer, in writing, within 30 days after the date of the accident causing the injury, may lose the right to workers’ compensation benefits.


    a claim for workers’ compensation on Form C-3 and mail it to the nearest office of the Workers’ Compensation Board, if there is lost-time. If a claim is not filed within two years from the date of the injury or disablement from an occupational disease, (or after disablement and after you knew, or should have known that the disease was work-related), you may lose your right to benefits.
