New York’s 2017 Workers’ Compensation reform legislation enhances coverage for injured workers and provides savings for employers. Among the significant changes: If claimants were entitled to benefits at the time they were found to be permanently disabled, they no longer need to demonstrate ongoing labor market attachment. But the law doesn’t affect temporarily disabled claimants. These workers remain obligated to demonstrate attachment to the labor market.
Employers in the state of New York with partially disabled workers have an obligation to help these workers return to suitable employment, given their medical restrictions, and identify cases of no attachment to the labor market.

Cold calls: a key differentiator between Workfinders USA
and other return-to-work firms.
Almost all return-to-work firms leave it up to injured workers to find and apply for jobs. We don’t. Workfinders USA contacts prospective employers directly, to advocate on behalf of partially disabled workers. This provides a variety of advantages we detail in the free guide you’ll receive when you complete the form below. But to give you a taste of what an aggressive return-to-work program looks like, it’s worth mentioning that in some cases, we make 100+ calls to find a job for an injured worker that meets our criteria. Workfinders USA clients find this far superior to competitors that mainly rely on online job boards to find jobs and never attempt to verify with employers that the jobs are open and suitable within a worker’s restrictions.
