Q: What should I do if New York State issues my small business a penalty, fine, judgment or Stop Work Order for not having Workers' Compensation or Disability Insurance?
A: If you are given a penalty, judgment or fine by the New York State Workers' Compensation Board, you should read the notice thoroughly but do not respond by making any damaging admissions which can cost you thousands of dollars in penalties in the future. Instead, call our experienced New York Workers' Compensation Board Defense Lawyers who have over 25 years of legal experience and have successfully saved small businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars in judgments and fines from the New York State Workers' Compensation Board.
Q: What could happen if I ignore the Workers' Compensation Notice?
A: The worst thing you can do is to ignore the Notice. Your failure to answer the Notice in a timely manner could result in a judgment being issued against your business and, possibly, you personally. Your business could be found responsible for thousands of dollars in fines and penalties in your absence. In addition, this may result in you paying higher insurance premiums for several years. In certain circumstances, this can be avoided by hiring the right lawyer.
In addition, the New York State Workers' Compensation Board could issue a Stop Work Order preventing you from operating your business.
Q: What is a judgment?
A: A valid money judgment is a legal judgment that resolves all the contested issues and terminates a claim and is considered the official decision of the law on the action. In other words, New York State can freeze your business’ bank accounts, place a lien on your business’s real property and equipment and adversely affect your credit report and ability to work vendors.
Q: I already closed my business. Can I be personally responsible for the penalty or judgment?
A: It depends on the circumstances. For more information, call our office and speak with one of our experienced Workers' Compensation Defense Lawyers.
Q: What can your Law Firm do for me?

Recently, New York State has increased its efforts to penalize business that did not comply with the State’s Workers' Compensation law and, as part of the process, the State significantly increased the penalties. Once New York State has obtained a judgment, it can seize bank accounts and place liens on valuable and critical business assets. If unpaid, the amount of the judgment may increase with the accumulation of interest. In addition, a judgment can negatively impact a company’s credit report and score, its ability to obtain financing, and its relationships with vendors.

I did not know I had a workers compensation judgment until I went to sell my house. That is when my nightmare started. My real estate attorney told me my house had a lien on it and I could not sell it until I paid off a judgment to the New York State Workers Compensation Board. My real estate attorney could not help me. My insurance broker could not help me. I interviewed several attorneys and hired Mr. Sanchala. He is extremely bright and a strong advocate. He was able to reduce my penalty and remove the judgment. I hope to sell my house soon! – Former Client
