New York Chair Zachary Weiss Announces Passage of Rocket Docket Regulations

                               

New York, NY (CompNewsNetwork) - Chair  Zachary Weiss announced that at its recent meeting, the New York State Workers' Compensation Board voted unanimously to adopt new regulations creating a streamlined docket to resolve controverted claims.

This vote marks a great leap forward for New York's injured workers who will now receive their needed benefits more quickly.

In the past, it took an average of over 200 days to resolve disputed claims. The goal set forth by the 2007 reform measure is to resolve these cases in 90 days. These streamlined docket regulations will help make sure we meet that goal.

The Board is ready to implement these new regulations effective November 3. We will continue to improve our operations and better serve the injured workers of New York.
