Webinar Series for Workers on Workers' Compensation and COVID-19 - New Dates Added



Webinar Series for Workers on Workers' Compensation and COVID-19 - New Dates Added (Including a webinar today at noon!)

"The New York State Workers' Compensation Board is continuing its webinar series to help workers who believe they contracted COVID-19 due to their work, especially those who have missed time from work or are suffering from ongoing or "long-haul" symptoms.


Employees with a work-related injury or illness have two years from the date of becoming injured or ill to file a workers' compensation claim, so the deadline is approaching for workers who contracted COVID-19 due to their employment in the early days of the pandemic.

Each one-hour session will provide information on workers' rights when it comes to filing a workers' compensation claim and the cash and/or medical benefits they may be eligible to receive.
