New York WCB
Extends Time Period For Public Comment On New And Revised Board Forms
New York, NY (CompNewsNetwork) - The New York Workers' Compensation
Board has extended the time period for the public to comment on draft revisions of the
Board's three primary claim forms and two new forms.
Forms C-2, C-3, and C-4 are filled out by New York's employers, injured workers and
doctors, respectively, to report a workplace injury or illness. The public is also invited
to review two additional forms: Form C-3.3, which allows claimants to authorize the release
of medical information by health care providers, and Form C-4.2, the treating doctor's
continuing/final report. The revised C-4 will be used for the doctor's initial report
The forms are being redesigned as part of Governor Spitzer's workers' compensation
reform initiative. Enhanced forms that capture more details about a workplace injury or
illness will help the Board better serve injured workers, employers and workers'
compensation system stakeholders.
