New York City Workers’ Compensation and Workplace Injuries

If you’ve been injured on the job, there are two things you must do immediately. First, you need to obtain any necessary medical treatment for your injury. Next, you need to notify your supervisor or manager so they can report the injury to the New York Workers’ Compensation Board, as well as your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer.

You will also need to file Form C-3 (Employee’s Claim for Compensation). However, you don’t need to do so immediately. You have two years from the date of the accident or the date when a medication condition related to the accident is discovered.

Does Your Employer Carry Workers Compensation Insurance?

Under New York law, all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. According to New York State’s government website, “this rule includes part-time employees and family members employed by the company.” Employers do have some flexibility – they’re able to choose a private insurance carrier, to go with self-insurance, or to use the New York State Insurance Fund. However, the mandated coverage must be in place.
