New York Worker's Compensation Board Fines Employers of Nannies

Over 30 Years of Legal Experience Fighting For You

In June 2011, many New York small business owners and homeowners who employ nannies were issued serious monetary penalties by the New York Worker's Compensation Board for failing to have required workers compensation insurance coverage under Section 52(5) of the law. For many individuals throughout New York State, these government penalties and fines could mean financial ruin if they do not obtain experienced legal assistance.

In recent years, New York State has raised the monetary fines for not having workers compensation insurance coverage by approximately ten fold. Currently, covered employers who do not have required coverage are subject to a $2,000 fine for every 10 days of non-compliance. In addition to a Workers Compensation Penalty or Fine, businesses may receive a Stop Work Order meaning they cannot operate their business until they are in compliance with the law. These penalties and fines can result in judgments which can adversely affect your assets including your home. Some Workers Compensation penalties, fines or Orders may carry criminal charges as well.

New York State workers' compensation insurance covers employees who suffer work-related accidents, injuries or illness. While it is important for employers to have such coverage, New York State is using this non-compliance as a method to raise revenue.
