“High Workers’ Compensation costs continue to be a major concern for New York employers. Thanks largely to the leadership of Rochester Chamber, its Workers’ Compensation Committee, and other business partners, significant headway has been achieved the past two years to pass much-needed reforms. As a result, this year the New York State Loss Cost levels are decreasing for 98% of the Worker Classification Codes. As always, we have more work to do, but this is great news for New York State employers. Rochester Chamber remains an effective advocate for employers – it gets things done!”
