In a new video FAQ, attorney Michael Rose discusses your rights when it comes to reporting an injury or for filing a lawsuit over an injury that occurred while on the job. People are often concerned that their employer may choose to fire them for filing a lawsuit, but as attorney Rose points out, this should not be a concern. There are protections in place for injured workers in New York, and if you’ve been hurt in an accident, you have the right to take legal action without fear of retaliation from your employer.
If you or someone close to you has been hurt in a construction accident, you have the right to seek compensation from your employer’s workers’ comp policy.

New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer is seeking over 1,000 workers that are owed $3.7 million in wages. The collection of workers was not adequately compensated for the work they performed when contractors failed to offer them the minimum wage for public projects over the last 10 years.
Each of the 1,056 workers is owed an average of $3,576 for the work they have performed over the years. The Comptroller’s office collected the money during litigation with several contracting companies. A total of 21 companies were banned from public projects within the city after it was discovered they were failing to pay employees.
The list of individuals that are owed money is currently on the official Comptroller website, as well as being posted on social media sites and around the city on paper fliers. The message is being played in eight different languages in order to quickly reach the workers.
You deserve to be paid the appropriate wage for what the work you performed. Contact the New York workers’ rights attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP if your employer is withholding your rightfully deserved wages. For more information, call (212) 779-0057 today.
