Small business owners have a lot to think about when they’re doing business in New York. For some, the desire to self-insure instead of trying to navigate the workers’ compensation insurance system is one of the challenges they face. We know that this is sometimes a big undertaking, and we’re here to help.
It’s imperative that all small business owners understand the requirements they must meet in order to operate within the confines of New York law when they’re self-insuring. Our law firm is familiar with the requirements so we can help each small business owner ensure that they have appropriate self-insurance.
The issues that you face when you self-insure your business don’t end with only making sure you’re meeting the legal requirements. You also have to think about what will happen if one of your employees is hurt on the job.
When this happens, you must protect your business but you must also be sure that you’re respecting the employee’s rights. We’re here to help in these situations because determining how to provide appropriate medical coverage and other requirements isn’t always easy.
There are times when a self-insured business might have to fight a legal battle because of a matter related to an alleged work injury. This can be a trying time for a small business owner because they have to focus on continuing to run their small business while also balancing their protection of the company. We’re here to work with you in these situations to ensure that your company’s interests are protected throughout the legal case brought by an employee.
