Welcome to NYWCA's Website

The Workers Compensation Alliance is a statewide coalition of injured workers and other stakeholders committed to protecting the rights of injured workers under the New York State Workers’ Compensation laws--and we want this new website to be a resource for these parties and the general public.

Today the New York workers’ compensation system is broken.
