Since we have not received payment on your delinquent account, this notice serves as final notice. Failure to resolve your debt may result in the filing and execution of a judgment against you and/our business as allowed by The New York State Workers Compensation Law and the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules Enforceable by the New York State Workers Compensation Board. A judgment against you and/or your business is a matter of public record. Please take this opportunity to resolve your account voluntarily.
An employer’s failure to provide workers compensation coverage is punishable by fines and/or criminal prosecution. A Stop Work Order may be issued. The cost of workers compensation insurance coverage is very reasonable compared to the legal cost of defending and possibly losing a civil suit for the injury of an employee.
Please take this opportunity to resolve your account voluntarily. We encourage you to contact our office and allow us to inform you on the options available to resolve your debt in compliance with the New York State Workers Compensation laws and avoid unnecessary penalties in the future.
