  • New York State’s Labor Laws were created to protect workers on construction sites.
  • Construction companies and project managers may not like those laws, but it is critical that injured employees are protected.
  • Under the Workers’ Compensation Law, a person injured on a construction site may bring a compensation case.
  • According to Section 200, Section 240(1), and Section 241(6) of our Labor Laws, an injured worker may bring a cause of action against the general contractor, the owner, and any others who have a financial interest in the project.
  • Those protections benefit injured workers by imposing strict liability on individuals who are responsible for their work site safety.
