Defending Employers Podcast: Episode 241

The Powerful Consent Requirement in NY and Third-Party Settlement Consent Best Practices

Section 29(5) has an explicit written consent requirement. In this episode, “The Powerful Consent Requirement in NY and Third-Party Settlement Consent Best Practices,”, Christopher Major goes over how to weaponize this powerful leverage in the context of your case. A good consent letter can drastically reduce your total exposure, but a bad consent letter can sink a case!

Major discusses the following:

  • What Section 29(5) requires legally
  • The difference between a written consent agreement, a compromise order, and a nunc pro tunc motion (i.e., “cramdown motions”)
  • Using Matter of Stenson and Williams v. Lloyd Gunther Elevator Service to make an air-tight consent.
  • Navigate Kelly, Burns, and Bissell in one comprehensive written agreement.
