N.Y. Workers Comp Assessment System Altered

October 16, 2000

New York Gov. George Pataki has signed a law changing how insurers are assessed by the state for six special workers compensation funds. Assessments under the new law will be made based on the amount of premium written. Insurers will collect the funds from policyholders through a surcharge.
