Nearly all employers in New York are required to provide workers' compensation insurance for their employees. Even undocumented workers — those with no green card and no Social Security number, who are sometimes referred to as illegal aliens, — have a right to receive workers' compensation when injured on the job.
If an employee is injured in a workplace accident or develops a work-related illness, disability or disease, he or she is entitled to receive benefits at no cost through the employer's workers' compensation insurance.
"What you are entitled to under the
law and what the insurance company will pay for are two different things."
— Attorney Alan M. Cass
