The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is joining forces with more than 50 organizations all across New York in pushing for commonsense Workers’ Compensation reform.  In a letter to every member of the New York State Legislature, the Partnership and its allies outlined the need for Workers’ Compensation reform and the specific changes that should be made to lower employer costs without compromising care and compensation for injured workers.  New York State currently has the third highest Workers’ Compensation premium costs in the country, up from 19th highest back in 2008.
