Video: Navigating Section 32 Settlements in New York

In this video, Greg Lois and Christian Sison discuss the guidance from the Board regarding general releases in Section 32 settlements in New York Workers’ Compensation claims. This video is from a live webinar provided to clients on October 18, 2021.

In this video, Greg & Christian talk about:

  • What the Workers’ Compensation Law says about general releases and waivers of claims outside Workers’ Compensation;
  • Whether General Releases are now disallowed;
  • The impact of the new Board guidance on the releases you have already obtained;
  • What defense counsel and risk professionals will need to do now to protect their clients.
